True, but, you could try another Maroon.. This is iffy, and you could ask the LFS, or let them know what you plan to do, and they may take it back if it doesn't get along well.

maroons are the most incompatible of the clowns with clarkii clowns in second. You can try it but i dont recommend it

Maroons do tend to fight a lot.

A pair of Percs or Ocellaris, but I would not mix 2 different kinds of clowns in a 20, especially with a Maroon.

You usually have to buy maroons as a matched pair. They are in a different type family than normal clowns. I have a maroon in a 20g with only two small pj cardinals and have no problems. However, I have the capacity to move the pj's to another tank if the maroon gets aggressive. O. clowns have great personality from my own experience and they are the only ones I've ever had in my main tank. If you want a pair I would suggest trading the maroon and getting a pair of something else.
