2 sets if clowns?

I have a set of occe clowns.. month ag are doing great but was debating on getting a pair of the black and whites sorry for forgetting the name. I have a 55 gallon collum with about 50 pounds of live rock so there's plenty of room to be apart just wasn't sure if they would fight

I have 2 sets of clowns right now but i introduced both sets at the same time and they are all teeny tiny. I've heard they can get territorial. How big are your clowns now?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

It also matters apparently which clowns you mix. I mixed some b&w oscellaris with regular misbarred oscellaris. Both are very low on the aggression side. I read that true percula clowns are higher up on the aggression scale as well as maroon clowns and tomato clowns. clarkii ones are also good. i did alot of research before I got a second set.

It is really hit or miss, some people experience no issue at all while others end up with dead fish. Perculas, maroons, etc.. I would say are definite no's. My perculas are mean little things, just be prepared to separate them if things go south.
