    Picasso is just a variant of occellaris. It's still occellaris but with a nice pattern.

    If you don't have a backup plan for if they fight then rather not. I have a 600l tank and had four clowns in there but the dominant pair still went after the smallest one even though it was waaaaay on the other side of the tank from which they lived. When I took the smallest out, they went after the next smallest. :(

    I think it's fine till two hit maturity and pair up. Then they'll start going after the others. I've seen a tank with 5 clowns but they're still tiny and not mature.
