Yoyos and Clowns do they live together in the wild

I added my 3 small Yoyos to my 55 gallon with 2 larger clown about 6 months ago.
Since then then Yoyos have outgrown the Clowns and are a good 5-6 inches when I put them in at 3 inches I thought they wouldnt grow anymore.
I know clowns are slow growers but geez.
Anyway I am wonderign if they come from the same waters as the Yoyos seem much more aggresive then the clowns and I see they bug them on occasion and sometimes the clowns and the Yoyos get into it where there bodys are wrapped together.
I also notice the Yoyos taking food from other fish and just causing alot of trouble.
Is this normal behavior?
