clownfish question

I have a 55 gallon with some live rock and just got 2 tomato clowns. One is about 2 inches and th other is about 1 inch. I have heard they can be pretty mean. Currently i have just damsels with them and a anenome that the clowns host with. My question is will the tomatos be ok with the damles and are there any fish i shouldnt keep with the tomatos?

What kind of damsels? I have a blue devil and he is mean, the 2 three stripped ones I have are not as mean as the blue and my two yellow tails are pretty docile (unless the others come near their territory). I believe the maroon clowns tend to be the meanest. The tomato clowns are semi-aggressive. I would tend to think, if they are tank bread, they might not be as aggressive...?

I have found some damsels can become more aggressive as they get older. My blue devil and 3 stripes killed my royal gramma.

I agree, as damsels get larger, they will become pretty agressive.
