Gold Banded Maroon Clownfish goes with?

I have a mature maroon clownfish. It is aggressive. What other fish are compatible with it? Right now, I have a yellow tang and a percula butterfly. They are both good size and they all get along. My blue hippo tang died but I am not sure if they clownfish attacked it or not.

How big is your tank and how old is it ?
Maroons are agressive but I would think that the hippo could stand its own ground . How big was your blue hippo ?

IMO the hippo tang is an ick magnet. Maybe you`d be better with a yellow eyed Kole tang. As Sadie asked though what size tank is this?

Tank Size

I have a 72 gallon tank with 1 yellow tang, 1 Double Saddleback Butterfly and a Six Line Wrasse. The maroon clown is about 4 inches long. This is my second blue hippo tang. Maybe it died because of stress and the new tank but the maroon killed my coral beauty. Can I get a Bi-Color Angel? I just wanted a blue fish. Or 3 yellow tailed damsels? Flamehawk? I don't want any more yellow fish. Another wrasse? Thanks!

I haven't seen the wrasse for two days now either. Wonder if it's the clown?

Wrasses jump check sumps and around the tank for a fish or look for a smiling cat
