Yes, probably. It's not a good idea to put more than 2 clowns in a tank, unless it's huge.

Clownfish are aggressive towards other clowns. They will probably nip at the new one, until it dies of stress. You could still try it though because not all fish behave the same, I'm just telling you what could probably happen.

I had 2 pairs in a 125g and had trouble after a few months. they liteerally were harassing my b&w's to near death. I removed the one pair the same day to avoid them killing my pride and joy. Trouble starts out of no where and it can be brutal. i say one pair of clowns per tank, PERIOD. I'd hate for someone to have to go through what i did.

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

I wanted the black and whites but was overruled. I guess I shouldn't complain since this was supposed to be her birthday present. LOL
