If you are talking about a mated pair, yes. I have a pair of maroons that share a lta.

That dosent mean mated pair... If you pick 2 that seem to be buddys then you have a better chance ... Look for a larger and considerably smaller one ... You will have a 50/50 shot at them pairing ... I had one that killed any new ones that I introduced... now we did get one that is a pair ...She even killed the one that I bought with her.... and a few days later she bullied the other to death .. Be prepared to remove one if it is getting bullied ..

You will have a better chance with this. But as Mrs sadielynn said nothing is for certain with clowns

If you buy them before they are sexually differentiated, they will pair up later on. This is how I got my mated pair.

This is not always 100% either both of mine were small with one being smaller .....and the larger one still bullied the other to its death ... It is a help but clowns are damsels or of the damsel family and can still be agressive to their own kind .... While they are more peacefull that dosent mean that they cant stand their own ground .

Ok, so lets so you get a total of three, and none of the pair with each other. Are the going to compete with eachother for the anenome?

That is a very real possibility . That along with the fact that they will eventually fight till one or more dies at the fin of the more dominant fish . HTH
