I would say you should be OK. They come with an attitude though. You can see mine in this pic. The yellow is 13 yrs old, the kole is 10 yrs and the scopas is 8 yrs old.

I have 3 clowns (true), Kandern's cardinal, and coral beauty. Think everyone should be fine? The clowns are young and tank bred, so they are cool so far.

You will be fine with that combo. Your yellow eye Kole will rise to the top of the pecking order.
