different types of clownfishes in one tank?

so far i have ...

1 yellow tail damsel
1 striped damsel
1 blue chromis
2 yellow chromis
2 ocellaris clowns

... in my 55 gal. tank. they are all small about 2-3 inches long. i was wondering if i can put a black & white ocellaris clown in my tank. would the two types of clowns become aggressive with each other? .. if i put only one B&W clown in there would there be a greater chance of the 2 ocellaris stressing him out?

im no expert,but damsels are too big and active for a 55. i dont think 2 pairs of clowns would work,or even the 3 clowns for that matter.

No the damsels are ok. People don't like them though because they are really aggressive.

From what i've heard you should only have a pair of clown fish in one tank..no more.And i dont know how you have 2 damel's in one tank..i had 2 java damel's and one of them actually picked on the other one until it was weak and about dead.

u realize that the clowns are damsels, right? I've got 3 yellow tails. They play nice though they are the smallest in the tank (outside the gobies)
