As far as I know, clowns in general go with most anything; unless that other thing is predatory and would eat the clowns. They can have issues with conspecific clowns & damsels outside the pair. I believe the maroon clowns tend to have some attitude towards each other & tank mates but I have no experience with them.

The clowns will be a meal for the eel unless it is a zebra eel, which are very peacful but can get over 4' long.

I think all clowns are pretty hardy, maybe led a bit more by Ocellaris. They are generally pretty peaceful, but most clowns are.
