I hear what your saying but I have done this before on a few occassions and not yet had an issue. It is quite important though that the new addition be a very noticable size smaller than the current clown (½size or less). With A. ocellaris (?) you shouldn't have any concerns really. I had a female for well over a year before adding the male and they barely squabbled at all.

This isn't true of all clown species, some can be quite beligerant but with the clown you have, it isn't usually the case.

I have a maroon clown, I know they are really aggressive, but is possible to get a smaller one in there or is it kinda risky?

Maroons are a riskier prospect but having a larger tank does help. I would call them a definate 50/50 though.
