I believe it would be better to get a smaller one. Just make sure to watch them. The larger should become female and the smaller one should become a male.

+++EDIT+++

I love them too, so much personality!

If you get one the same size they will go through their ritual to establish dominance and then the victor will grow larger and become the female. All clowns are born males and as they pair up they change over.
