forcing them to pair up always a tricky part. I found that sometimes if u give them a little bit of a push, they kind of pair up really fast. Try remove them to a smaller tank or refugium, they will get a little be stressed, but u might found that after a bit they start to hang out together.My guess is when they get scared they will look for similar looking buddy to stay with which they think its the safe way.
BTW, yes u need to choose a really small one then a huge one compare to the small one.

The one i have that survived is almost two inches.

As Steve-s has already stated, getting a new one that is about 1" would insure it is a juvenile. That SHOULD be a safe partner to add. There are no guarantees.

You should watch for signs of aggression and remove the aggressor to a QT tank for a few days and then re-introduce it to the main tank again. That sometimes helps.
