Yellowtail Damsel and Percula Clownfish?

Hey guys,

I currently have a small male percula clownfish in my 14G biocube and I just recently added a cleanup crew as well. I really want to add a yellowtail damsel, but have heard very mixed opinions on it. I have heard that it's totally fine, that it is ok if you add the damsel last, that the yellowtails are some of the least aggressive damsels, but i have also heard people say that the damsel terrorized the clown regardless of other variables. I don't want to ruin my tank, so I was hoping for some advice, feedback, or maybe some input from someone that has dealt with damsels and or clowns before.

THANKS!

I have 4 clowns and two yellow tail damsels. At one point the bigger yellowtail harassed the smaller

Sorry, hit wrong key. Anyway the damsels had a bit of a fuss but not with clowns. Now everyone gets along.

thanks! I will definitely add the damsel last and if he gets aggressive then i'll take him back to the LFS. I have biocube 14...water is pretty clear, but appears to be a decent amount of particles floating around...any idea of how to get my water to be crystal clear?
