i asked the same question day before yesterday lol.

I was told that you can if you introduce both sets at the same time.

I currently have the B&W's, they are soo neat and I plan on adding the "cheap" oscellaris when I move my guys over to my new 55g.

Not sure if that helped, but it can be done. I've also heard not get odd numbers of them, like dont get 3 or 5 clowns.

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

oh wow buddy, I would say maybe. but 2 pairs in a 55 gal tank isn't the best idea.

If your going to do it, move your aquascaping around once you get the others ready for addition, so the territories can be established again. if you have an anenome I would get 2 so the pairs aren't warring over one.
