what about having a pair of percular and a gold banded maroon in an 70g

Old Chinese proverb:
Don't go to bed with ichy bum
wake up with smelly finger!!

Sure, why not throw in a blue-spotted grouper and a seahorse while your at it too! XD Seriously, a maroon will attain the largest size of all the clowns and the most aggressive; there will be aggression on both sides of the fence. If you are set on combining species, I would opt for clownfish within the skunk complex (I prefer pinks: Amphiprion perideraion) and Saddleback's (Amphiprion polymnus) Clarkii temperments are all across the board from docile to aggressive so they are wild cards ime. Clarkii's and Percs/Ocellaris could inhabit reasonably together as could Clarkii's and Tomato complex. All are possible recipes for disaster.

Dog fight! or should i say clown fight. Look im not saying you won't be able to keep two different species in that small of a tank. But its not going to happen with out a fight and in most cases someone is going to loose. and the rivel will never stop. When we were trying to breed gold bar maroon clowns. We had a pair that was breeding like clock work. The male died. It took us 19 gold bars to get a trio. We added 5 the first time, 7 the second time one she let live, thrid time 5 she let one more live, they faught for several days to become the male. Keep in mine this tank was almost 10' long. my advice stick with the pair. good luck
