I wouldn't do it. Tomatoes are among the most aggressive. I have a small sebae in with a percula and they work well and are similar in size. As a general rule , clowns can be very aggressive and species don't mix well.

You know you are a true fish-o-holic if you can field strip any powerhead on the market.

the perculas and false perculas do fine together, tomatoes have a tendency to get terretorial and a little aggressive.

I placed a mated pair of false perculas and a tomato clown in a 75 gallon at the same time, thinking that they would have plenty of room and define their own territories on seperate ends of the tank. Plus, I thought the whole 2 against 1 matchup would be a deterrent to any tomato aggression. It didn't happen. What did happen was a battle royale of clown fighting which the tomato was winning. When all was done, the tomato was scooped out and placed in solitary confinement in a 12gal eclipse tank, while the mated pair stayed in the 75gal. the moral of the story; never mix tomato clowns with less aggressive clowns. They are bullies.
125gal. megaflow. Fish Residents:
Yellow Tang -(Junior), Flame Angel -(Flamey)
Bicolor Blenny -(Butch), Randall Jawfish -(Jaws)
Lawnmower Blenny -(Lenny), Talbot's Damsel -(Dottie), Tomato Clown -(Ketchup)
Nameless fish include, Neon Blenny, Singapore Shrimp Goby, Yellow Tail Damsel, 1 Skunk Cleaner Shrimps, purple pseudochromis.
