You should be careful with different clown species together.. They've been known to kill each other.

In that size tank, multiple clowns is fine. There is enough room for each pair to establish territory. Nice looking tank! I'm assuming it will eventually be a reef?

In terms of a reef tank, I was thinking that I would keep this FOWLR, and when I have more experience, get a second smaller reef tank w just a few reef friendly fish and a pair of seahorses. The dream of seahorses many years ago was what inspired us to take this big tank when it was offered, but don't think that it would work for seahorses.
