How many Ocellaris Clowns should I put together?

All of the same species.. I know mixing clowns is NOT a good idea, but these little guys are friendly.

I would not have more then a pair of any one type of clown in a single tank unless you have a very large tank.

I agree, otherwise the pecking order will be off balance. If you have a 3rd one, the other two will more than likely stress it to the point of death, illness or serious injury.

So if I have a pair of clowns from one species they will be fine with a pair from another species?
