Just an FYI, a clownfish will not sex unless it has already changed by having another clown in the tank. The large one you have my still be unsexed so adding a smaller one should give you a better chance of the larger becoming the dominant female with the smaller of th tow the male. They may fight until one of them estabilishes their dominance.

If they are both unsexed, will they still fight?
I have two small clowns in my tank, they get along great... always together, and they sleep together. Wherever one goes, the other follows. But they're both only 1" or so.

Justin, your clowns have already paired up then.

Make sure when you add a new clown that isn't too much smaller because sometimes it backfires and the larger one that has already established itself in the aquarium might kill the newcomer. I've seen it happen both ways, when they pair up or they get killed. Most of the time also the fish that is introduced is sexless while the fish already in your home aquarium if they are there for a month are more, is likely to be a female.

Justin, just to answer your question, yes there will be a little "fighting" but qould subside once one is determined to be the dominant one.
