mixing clowns

Hi everyone. I have a quick question about mixing clowns that I hope someone can answer. I have nearly fully stocked my tank and the last 2 fish I am putting in are my clown fish. I know not ideal with adding angel and foxface but I was left with no choice really. I really like the idea of having both the most common orange clown but I also like the black and white clowns. Is it possible to mix them or would they just fight and are there special species that can be mixed. Thanx for the help.

I have one of each in my tank and they get along great. Pretty much paired up straight away. I think as long as they r the same type u should b fine. each fish have different attitude too though suppose. Can only try your luck... But im no expert . Goodluck oh.. They are ocellaris clowns

I had a gold band maroon and reg ocelleris clown in a tank together for about 2-3 months with no issues. They swam together all the time. But it was only temporary as I was holding the ocelleris for a friend.

It's not a common occurrence. They do tend to be aggressive toward each other.

2 ocellaris clowns are fine together. Those technically are the same. I'm talking about a maroon and a clarkii, or something like that.
