    hi guys,
    a mate of mine has recently bought 2 black perc clowns.
    and on introduction into his tank his tomato clown started ripping them apart!
    he has since sumped them but swimming space will be very cramped.

    he came to me to ask if he could place them in my tank. i'd gladly do it. but a need a couple of answers before i do so...

    1.) i have a couple normal true percs in my tank, if i introduced them would this cause havoc?
    ie. 2 different types of percs in one tank

    just a couple of things about my tank. i have a large magnifica anemone that my 2 clowns are hosting in currently.
    a also have a small yellow sebae anemone. with nothing hosting it.
    both anemones are in good health.
    and both are on opposite sides of my tank.
    my tank is 1m wide. and is 240L

    would it be ok to put them into my system?

    will my clowns start fighting with them?
