How many clowns can I have in my tank?

I am planning on putting a pair of clowns in my tank. Is it possible to have more than the pair with them having this much room or should I just stick with two?
525 gal 96X35X36
120 gal sump

Probably at least 10 (2 per 100g of tank space). What are the tank dims? Do you have a stocking plan for it yet?

No stocking plan, some of the fish I am looking at are. 4-5 yellow tangs, purple tang, sailfin tang, clowns, Possibly a school of chromis, royal gamma basslet, goby, one day a blue girdled angelfish.

the clowns will generally all pick their own little spot in the tank and if u provide anemones they will not roam without about 1-2 feet tops from their home.. a tank like that could easily have 4-5 clown pairs..

5 pairs, one pair per 100g.

Get some black ones, some true, clarkii, skunk and maybe maroon or tomato?

That would rock.
