The theory is, as long as you get one that is smaller than the one you have, you should be fine. Your older, larger clown should convert to female if it hasn't already, the new one male. If you get one to large, there is a chance you may get two females and then territorial issues may take place. Adding smaller has always worked for me with ocellaris clowns. Good luck.

I agree with Fluff. Add a smaller one and things should be just fine. They might tiff for a little...but they'll work it out.
