I've had groups of occellaris and percula clowns living together for years with no issues, however, I would be a little leary of putting a bunch of tomato clowns together..... from my experience they tend to be much more aggressive as adults.

So the concept of keeping clowns in a harem comes from their natural tendency to do this in the wild. Some clowns are more prone to this than others based on what I’ve seen in my research. The reason that I chose the Fire Clown is that they are supposed to be one of the natural harem clowns and also are natural bubble tip hosters. That said I am not familiar with Fire Clowns from personal experience, so I was hoping someone would have some insight into them specifically.

For some reason the video won't play. I saw the picture before the video though. Looks like you have a bunch of occelaris in there! Did you have anemones as well, or just the fish?
