Adding clownfish to tank

I currently have a percula clow that is almost 3 inches long... Would it be possible to add another without someone getting killed?

As long as they are a very small clown yes, if you have 1 clown it will be female so need your next clown to be male or not sexed yet so buy very young very small one

Will they eventually pair up? I just don't want the big one to kill the juvenile.

I had a small occ clown (around 1.5") and added a larger black occ clown (around 2.5") a few months later. They were fine and haven't ever fought. They aren't paired but I'm thinking it will just take time, I would just say to make sure one is very small and has hiding places.

As stated be sure the new guy is at least half the size. If you can remove the larger one and make a few caves that she cant get into but the new one can give him a week to get settled, then add the large one to the tank, keep a close eye on them when feeding as that when she's likely to attack.

Adding another will actually depend on the tank size. What size tank?
