I would get one that is a lot smaller than the one you have. The larger more aggressive clown is usually the female adn the smaller one the male. So if you add a small one the big one can become the female.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Yeah, that's the best suggestion I can come up with. It's better to add them both at the same time but when it's different times usually you get a smaller one.

Sounds like it will work out ok. They may be a bit snippy towards each other at first but they should get over it hopefully.
