Has anyone had any luck mixing tomato and percula clowns?

Hello everyone! I am having quite a time trying to decide what fish I want to get next. I currently have a 60 gallon tank that has been established for about 3 years or so. I have a Blue Tang and Percula Clown, and various snails, crabs, and shrimp. I don't have any corals at the moment, but it could be a possibility. I also have a rose BTA. I have a Tomato Clown in the QT, but recently found out that he will probably be aggressive towards my smaller Percula, and I don't want anything to happen to my little Nemo. The lfs that I purchased him from said they wouldn't take him back, even when I said that I wanted to get another fish from them. Any ideas on what to do with him? I feel bad for the little guy.

I am looking at the following fish to be a next possible tank mate. Any thoughts/comments? I also want to get a Flame Angel, but know that one should go in last.

Auriga Butterflyfish
Flame Hawkfish
Foxface Lo

TIA!

The Flame Hawk, although a great fish will murder your shrimp as soon as possible, I had a Pixie Hawk that would take out new shrimp in less than 12 hours. Look into a Fairy Wrasse. I recently added a Blue Sided Fairy Wrasse and everybody who comes over loves it, nice color and very peaceful.

I was looking at several wrasse actually - I like the vibrant colors. My only concern was that they all seem to be jumpers. My tank is pre-drilled with a hood. So, I'm worried they would try to jump out of the back of the hood or into the overflow.

I have mixed cinnamon and percs but not tomato (very similar). However I have plenty room for their "territories". I think you will have aggression issues. They are definitely mean fish. Is there another LFS or local reef club?

Yes, there is another lfs in Lakeland - I just felt badly for the little guy, I didn't want him to keep being shipped around and placed in one tank after another. I guess I'm just being silly. I would rather him have to adjust to another tank than harm my little percula.

I have a tomato and a gold stripe maroon and they fight all the time. The tomato instigates alot of it.
