I would get another Goldstripe if I were you.. Make sure it is smaller than the one in your tank and you should be fine.. Mixing species of clowns should not happen but i have seen it happen in a very large tank.. The smaller new addition clown will probably become the male..

If you want pairs of maroons, I highly recommend you buy them as a pair. Pairing maroons is hit and miss and they will fight to the death if they are both females.

Recently I can attest to not do it. I bought a new Maroon Clown about 2 weeks ago with a BTA for it to host. Then a few days ago I bought another Maroon Clown and a BTA. The old Maroon Clown stole both BTA and nearly beat the new Clown to death till I moved him to another tank w/o a Clown.

IMHO skip it, its not worth the trouble, and as the maroon grows and matures it will only get worst. The LFS has a 150 gal reef, with a pair of huge maroons. Biggest I have ever seen the males about 4" females easily 6". Anyways they added a big yellow tang and they shredded it to nothing.
