Clownfish Information

I have one ocellaris(tank raised) clownfish in my tank at the moment. I would like to add a few more. Must they be added in pairs and is it safer to keep an even amount of them , I was think of adding 3 more so I would have four in the tank. Is this a good idea? Can more than two be kept in a tank?

They will naturally pair up so an uneven number would result in one of them being ostrisized. Make sure to provide good aquascaping if you get 4 so they can both establish their own home.
