This would depend one the size of your tank, the quantity of live rock, and what you have for filtration.

Provide a little bit more info on your tank specs and I am sure someone will provide an honest opinion.

You would probably want to make sure the next tomato is much smaller than the one you have. Even then...you just never know about clowns. Tomatos are terrorists.

Clowns are well-known to be gladiators with each other to the death. Unless they are a mated pair take them back to the store. Clowns require at least 100+ gallons when you have more than one. All species will, eventually, duel with each other until only one swims away. There are exceptions but as a general rule you can only keep one at a time.

Why did you add a pair? I thought you were talking about adding only one.
