If you already had one it's best get the other smaller. How old are they? If they are both females you'll have trouble!

yeah you should get one smaller, the larger will become the dominant female. If they are both female they will fight

When introducing a new fish I always do it after lights out to a well fed tank. Saltwater fish seem to have longer memories than freshwater in my experience. You may need to pull the bully out for two weeks or chase it with net so you become the bully.
They may never get along. Good luck!
