How About This Combination ?

In my 60 gallon Fish-only, I am considering the following combination of fishes:

2 Maroon Clownfish
1 Coral Beauty Angelfish
1 Flame Angel
2 Javanese (Blue Velvet) Damsel
1 Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse (Maybe)

Would you think the damsels might cause trouble, as they are known to get aggressive ? Or would Blue Damsels have less potential for trouble than the Javanese ? And is it advisable to have more than one Maroon Clown ?

Its a crapshoot with damsels. Ive had some over the years that were absolute tank destroyers and some like the one I have now which has been an angel for the 8 years hes been in my tank. He was one of my tank cyclers. Id say less is more with them. Same goes for the maroon clowns. But this is coming from the guy who has 3 large tangs in his tank. Sometimes you roll the dice and win & other times you roll snakeyes.
