Default clowns!

ok so right now i have a 55 gallon with 50 pounds of life rock, 2 false percula clowns, a blue damsel, and a 4 striped damsel, and a couple corals, i am buying 90 more pounds of live rock and the guy who is selling me it is throwing in 2 black saddle pack percula clowns, i am only going to add like 20 or 25 more pounds to my exsisting system because i do not want to over run it, but i am storing the live rock until i get a bigger system like 90 or 100 gallons, um i was wondering if the 2 sets of clowns would be fine, the black ones are coming from a 29 gallon cube tank that had 90 pounds of live rock in it, so there territory cant be too much ahha, will it be fine???

It is hard to say but I would be willing to say that you will encounter aggression between the Clowns and the Humbug(4 stripe) Damsel as well!
Where are you storing the other live rock and for how long?

try rearranging some rocks in the tank... or just by adding the new rocks in it should lower all their aggression because the fish in there already will lose their existing areas and they will all look for new ones... i know the false can be kept with some but i think clowns are generally aggressive towards other clowns... and those damsels are def gonna be getting in the mix... karma

Bad idea to add all of these fish to a tank that small I see stress issues from all the infighting and chasing.. Maybe if you filled the hold entire tank with rock work ? But The False Percs. will feel the saddle backs bite no pun intended and the 4 strip is a killer in plain clothes .. He will rule that tank unless the clowns pair off .. Good luck I hope I'm wrong ..
