Maroon clowns are known to be highly aggressive. I think it would depend on the other fish in the tank.

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

I've seen them do some serious damage to other clownfish. They are gorgeous fish but I dont think peaceful is the word to describe them. I don't suggest keeping them in a reef tank.
