adding clowns, with clowns?

hey guys,

i have a pair of o clowns in my tank(ocean caught), they came with the tank when i bought it, i was wondering if there would be much trouble if i added another pair? i have the room for them, (55g) but i don't know if it;s a done thing?

i can remember my dad had a tank when i was a kid and he had 8 clowns in his tank, i remember it casue we named them after the liverpool football team.

any advice here guys?

You really don't want to add anymore than a pair to a tank. There will be fighting. If you added them at the same time as your first pair there MIGHT be better chances of them living together but even then the chances are slim. I'm holding out on a true perc pair myself. Real excited to find new homes for my green chromis.
