Clown only tank

Im thinking of setting up a clown only tank say a 20 gallon with 2 sets of clowns,1 cleaner shrimp ,2-4 snails,1 emerald, one peperment shrimp,and several coral frags from my 55.

Is it Safe to have more then one set of clows in a small tank?

As in 4 clowns in a 20? Not a good idea.

I agree. You might be pushing it there. In a larger tank > 55 gallons maybe. I wouldn't attempt it in a 20 gallon.

Too small a tank for 4 clowns IMO.

I agree...even if you got clowns that were happy together (which is not as easy as I thought) it would be too much...they do get bigger then you see them at the LFS...
