Clown question

I have a Clarkii and a Maroon in my tank. They both get on well although there was a bit of nipping when they were first introduced. I am now thinking of introducing a Tomato, but not sure whether is a good idea. Would anyone recommend this?

Mixing clowns generally does not work out well. I wouldn't push your luck by adding a third...

I have a Tomato and they grow fast and get pretty aggressive when they want to. Mine is the King of the tank and now the biggest. With the two you already have you would be asking for trouble..adding a third species.
