Maroon clowns are very agressive. Can you separate them?

sometimes that happens for a couple of days and then they adjust to one another.Sometimes not, then you would have to make a decision about which one to remove.

Of course. I think all are somewhat aggressive,but the maroon, clarki and the tomato clowns are known for being nasty. Go with a couple black ice if you can find them. I think they're really awesome looking.
