Clownfish question advice needed

Hi everyone thanks for taking a look at my post!

My question is this... I have two misbar percula clowns still rather young and a black and white ocellaris. The perculas are in my nano and the ocellaris is in my main display. All fish are same ages and close to the same size 1-1.5 inches. I am wondering if I can put them all together in my main display tank?

I have heard of people cross breeding them to get some nice looking designer clowns so I am assuming it can be done. Am I wrong?

Mixing them together isn't a big deal. The problem come when you get 3 clowns in the same tank. Two will pair off and quickly harass the third to death.

Yeah I don't want that that's for sure. I was hoping to regime them to my display but instead I may just buy a companion for my black and white.

My paired clowns are absolute bullies. Much as I'd love to have more than two in my main DT, I wouldn't try it

Agreed, clowns are complete jerks. I moved my tank up to a 90g and hoping my clowns wouldn't go jeffrey dahmer added another fish. Within minutes they completely shredded his tail and got das boot to the sump.
