Depends on the clowns and the size of the tank, it's inhabitants etc...but it is a pretty good bet.

IMH I would think that If they all were added at the same time it should not be a problem if the tank is large enough...

I personally have 3 clowns in my tank and they don't seem to fight at all..

Are these two A. ocellaris and a TR A. percula or are all three A. percula?

I am wondering if your success has more to do with them having not become sexually mature yet and are tollerating each other moreso due to it being a natural occurance for many clown species to congregate in groups when younger.... Hmmm....

Cheers
Steve

Unless you have a tank divider, i would stick with one pair and only if the pair has known each other or are introduced at the same time. However, i went to my LFS and i saw 15-25 clowns in a small tank. I hope they sold fast.

They are all A. Percula 1 of them is a TR and the other 2 are wild caught... I think the one TR percula is about to lay eggs as it is pretty fat and been getting that way over the last few weeks.. Very healthy and sticks with one of the wild caught perculas.. They all seem to get along great.. It seems like every other week. one of the wild caught will hang with one of the other fish He is pimpin it lol

That is good thing you have. It just goes to show you that you can never predict the way these animals will act......I love it. It always keeps you guessing.
