does size matter or is it colour?

or something else? i'm always watching the pecking order of my clowns and have noticed something i find strange-- in my 120 gallon there are six clowns. the pecking order is as follows--and i know that these change all the time, but this one is really well established with the only changes being at the top

#1--seven inch, normal markings #2--six inch, normal markings #3--five inch, normal markings #4--four inch, normal markings #5--two inch, normal markings #6--five inch, middle stripe is only a small blob (hmmm--wobbly circle?) on both sides, just under the pec.

i know that it is almost impossible to find a pecking order as well defined as this, but
