    No, you shouldn't keep different species together. Some rare people have claimed success keeping 2 different kinds but if I'm correct they had huge tanks BUT even then it's still not recommended or advised.

    Cake fan has a point but if there is 2 hosts and the percs are first and are allowed to FULLY pair off there shouldnt be a problem. Percs have been known to drive off Maroon Clowns the largest and meanest of all the clowns.

    My saddlebacks would kill any other clown that goes in the tank. I learned this the hard way.
    The only thing two reef keepers will agree on, is what the third reef keeper is doing wrong!

    Saddles are just one step below Maroons on the aggressive scale. Percs and Oscellaris are at the bottom. I wouldn't mix unless you have a really big tank....at least a 110.

    my clark and percula get along fine as long as the perc dosen't go near the anemone. They will hang out side by side without any problems.

    How old & big are they? How long have they been together? What is the size of your tank?

    Zookeeper i have seen maroons and percs kept together in 55 gallon. The maroons dont bother the perc although when the maroons go by the perc home they meet a face full of teeth. you just have to watch them and like i said allow thwe percs to be first and fully pair off (which takes about a year).
