Clowns

I have a 1.5-2 inch black clown in a 110 (3by 4). Could I put a smaller different type clown with it or will they fight?

They will most likely fight. Best not to mix them and no more than a pair.

+1. clownfish can be aggressive. The most clownfish you can have is one pair of the same species. Fish will behave aggressively to other fish that resemble them.

In a larger tank like that you might be able to get away with it. A guy I used to work for had a false perc, maroon and a clarki in a 90.. I believe he later got rid of the maroon because it was being mean, but to all the fish, not just the clowns

Maroon clowns are highly aggressive so it wouldn't surprise me

I'm actually surprised that the maroon and clarkii didn't fight. I guess it's possible if the clownfish have a unique or laid back personality. Another exception would be if the fish are still young
