I have a gold stripe maroon (2" long) in the FOWLR tank for just under a year now. A friend has offered me a percula that is around 3" to 4". Are they compatible? Or am I asking for troulble if I put them together?
Oh the tank is a standard 60g. Other inhabitants are a Bubble coral, a dogface puffer, a rabbitfish (Siganus diolatus), a harlequin tusk, a strawberry dottyback (psuedochromis sp.), & 2 small damsels (added to the tank last).
My friend says the percula is aggresive, so he wants to get rid of it.

Generally I don't recommend multiple clown species in smaller tanks - I do have a customer with 2 types in a 180 gallon and each pair has one side of the tank.

Maroons are generally the more aggressive, the perc might hold its own due to size.

If there is no alternative for the perc, I'd try it with caution, but best-case scenario, find a tank without a clown, for the perc.
