clown male not eating because of mate dying?

So these past few days my female misbar clown died all of my levels checked out well. not sure what exactly went wrong but, now my male won't eat. does this usually happen when one of the clowns die?

/: well i'm hoping he'll pull through. he's going to be put in the 55 gallon tank when it's all set up, so hopefully he'll do better in it.

i was considering the same thing. only thing I worry about is the established clown might kill the new comer.
