Clowns or Damsels in The Reef?

so ive been debating whether to remove my caramel clown and moving him to my bedroom reef tank or going with a school of maybe yellowtail damsels or 3-stripe damsels just for activity in the reef, i would love a school of either, or keep my caramels in the tank, what do you guys think..? also my tank is a 75g, thanks in advance guys,

I've got a tank with 3 big domino damsels and 6 big clarkii clownfish. They get along very well. But it's definitely a high risk situation.

Clowns are technically damsels lol. That being said damsels are a waste of tank space IMO as they can get nasty real quick.

Idk maybe it would swell aggression but they're unpredictable behavior wise.

Blue reef chromis are pretty cool (not the blue green ones). I would not put damsels in your reef tank unless they were the only fish.
