Maroon Clownfish??

I have had two ocilaris clownfish in my 75 gallon tank for some time now along with a few other fish. They are about two inches right now. I was wondering if i could get a maroon clown that is quite a bit smaller. I heard that they are quite agressive but if it is smaller would it work out?

I wouldn't. The maroon may be smaller now, but it's going to get bigger and meaner. Clowns get very territorial, the ocellaris may pick at the maroon until you have to remove it anyways.

After owning a GSM for over 8 yrs now I would not do it. They are very aggressive to other clowns.
