How many clowns do you have? # more sounds like alot....I had 4 clowns at one time in a 125g tank and had some aggression issues. It's usually recommended to have only one pair per tank, no matter the size of the tank.

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

Right now just the one. So we'll take the advice and only get one more. I think we will get one that is slightly bigger if we can find it.

Thank you all for the advice!

more than one established pair is not suggested but many have no issue with one pair and several juveniles in the same tank, a 55 would be fine for 4 clowns as long as you dont have your tank overstocked with other fish, and there is only one pair
