Clown Question

Last week I bought a maroon clown and I think that he is really cool! I want to get another clown and I was thinking about a true perc but I heard that clowns can be agressive, especially maroons. Would it be ok to add a perc or am I just asking for trouble? I have a 72 gal tank with 2 blue yellow tail damsels and the clown in it.

Thanks

Agree here too, the perc would probably be toast.

Do not buy another clown; even if the perc is bigger, it will just end up harrassing the maroon.
