a maroon clown can grow up 6".. i dont know if it's a good idea to leave it in there too long, but if you get a small one you can leave in there and provide it with a new tank while it grows.. from what i see in my tank, my maroon clown is only aggressive towards my percula and the smaller maroon clown... it's like 2 n half inches long and it is scared of a 1 n half inch damsel, so i concluded mines to be non-aggressive towards non-clowns

personally, I'd take the flame back and do a real nice setup for the maroon with an anemone, LR, some feather dusters, a shrimp and an emerald crab. With such a small tank, you are very limited...but those two together will kill each other

I have a single maroon in my 20 gal. It would KILL anything I add to the tank within 24 hours I am certin.

I had a pair of maroons but lost one last summer.

A pair of perc clowns would do nice in a 20 gal. Other clowns to look at would be a pair of skunk clowns or tomato clowns. Dont mix clown species.
