Clownfish

I was wondering if I can have a snowflake clownfish in a 45galloon tank with 1 other ocellaris clown fish?

Snowflakes are also occy clowns. They can live together. Since one is already established, you'll want to make sure one is larger than the other so aggression is toned down as they 'figure out' who will be the dominant female and other turn male.

Also to be on the safe side, the one being added should be smaller.

Smaller want necessarily sort it you need a male if you have had one for a while. The easiest way to find female it to take one from an established pair but harsh on clownfish other way is to buy very young

You're right, not necessarily but again it's just to be on the safe side. It's only an added deterrent. It will give the one he/she already has a chance to be the dominant female & is less likely to get hurt or worse, killed. That's the point.
