clowns are probably soem of the more peaceful fish to use, they are onyl aggressive to other clown fish that were not introduced at the same tiem or are not a mated pair. they are not related to damsel fish, they are two different species.

Clown fish and damselfish are both in the Pomacentridae family-clownfish are in the sub family Amphiprioninae. They are indeed related. Clown fish can become territorial to other types of fish, especially if the tank is small and they have other fish invading their territory. I have a clown that will try to kill anything that resembles a fish.

That said I still highly recommend clowns they are probably one of my favorite types of fish.
