Can I replace a clown fish?

So I have two OC clowns..ones a real {mod edit} pain.every time I stick my hand in the tank he constantly attacks me..like pesters me..I usually put him in the back of my biocide during water changes because its so annoying and its actually starting to hurt when he nips me. Anyways..I've been wanting a B&W OC for some time..can I simply rehome the clown and add a new B&W?

There is a risk in that the clowns you have now are a pair... adding a new one could create aggression. I have heard of it being done, but have also heard of bad experiences.

That would probably be the safest bet... if you introduce them both at the same time and both as younger/juvies, the chance of them cohabitating in your tank will go up. Clowns after all are related to damsels and can be quite aggressive.
