Also i have a false perc in there. do I have to get another false for them to pair? or will a trueperc pair with it? i know clarkis, tomatos etc wont work because they look so different but these two are very close

Same fish is probably best, but you never know. purchase one of the smaller ones, but it's best if you plant them in the tank at the same time. but it's nature so it really depends on what she wants

I don't think the type really matters. What will matter is size. Either get one that is a lot bigger or a lot smaller than your current one. The larger fish will become dominant. If your current one is already larger then I too would suggest a smaller one.

That I don't know. I think they are the same (bigger becomes the female) but could be wrong.

the most dominant will become the female.In your case I would just get smaller clowns as you have one in each tank already,but I would move some rockwork about a bit.I seen people have their new clowns put into a breeder in the same tank just to help with aggression from the original clown.

When adding a second you should look for one smaller. Expect some major squabbling at first
