The one that died was always very small and I had never seen any signs of aggression from the larger towards him. If I do try this, how should I go about it? Should it be bigger than the existing one? I don't want the new fish to be killed so if there is a high chance of this happening I won't do it. Thanks!
Its most likely that you have a female remaining from your description. Adding a very small clown is your best bet. This way not gender aggression and hopefully the would even pair up.
Getting a larger clown would most certainly end in aggression.
