    I would rather not, Clowns are very territorial

    I don't think so, the species you mentioned are probably the two most aggressive.

    Mike - I agree they shouldn't be kept together but would you say a percula / tomatoe clown is more aggressive than a maroon clown or yellow striped maroon?

    Not much difference between them, but i believe the maroon has the worst reputation.
