Maroon clowns are very aggressive towards other clowns. I have a big maroon and I recently put in a small maroon so they can pair up and she was harassing the baby for such a long time, until I turned off the lights, which calmed them down. If you do want to do this, make sure you have lots of hiding places and that you stay to monitor their behavior.

75g. I also put in a snowflake clown once. If I would've left them alone, it would been dead. Thank god I was there with a net.

Maroons are known to be nasty, I wouldnt attempt it, even in your big tank. My oscellaris took maybe 20 seconds to find my b&w's in my 125g and the harassment began. Had to remove one pair.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

My maroons are 5" and a small baby at about 1". They are not buddies but it was scary watching the big one dart at the small one from across the tank. But who knows, maybe they might get along. If you got them used to each other beforehand it might work.
