So my pair of Ocellaris clowns have been in a biocube 14 for about a year and a half and they have grown to what I feel to big for the tank. My question is if I move them to my 56 with all passive fish such as my trio of firefish, will the clowns show aggression and nip at my firefish? I really care for both sets of these fish so it's a tough decision because of how good they have done since I've had them.

I have 2 clowns (about 1.25 and 2 inches) a blue neon goby (1 inch) and a purple firefish (about 2.25 inch) in my 46 along with a fire shrimp and a peppermint shrimp... and they all get along fine... though I did once watch my firefish dart at my goby...

Going from a 14 to a 56 established tank I would expect little aggression though they my get feisty at first till they claim territory, most fish don't read the books

You probably could , but better have a top on the tank to prevent jumpers.
I have two in my reef for about a year and a half now . They hide underneath the rock and only come out to eat. The 6 line wrasse is the reason.
