    I tried to keep 4 clowns, they did not get along to well. Seems safer to have just a pair.

    It also depends on the size of your system. I know the guys with large aquariums that have more than 2 but generally 2 is the limit as these guys get very territorial and will kill others.

    Yes, your system limit is definitely 2. Sorry for that, I would also like more than 2 as I like these guys but not taking that chance.
