Clownfish Pairing

Hey all,

I have a 47 gallon FOWLR that currently holds 2 neon goby, 1 cardinal, and 1 black and white clown fish. For inverts I have 4 turbo snails and 3 hermit crabs. The tank has been established for a long time (about 10 years at this point - I got it from a friend about 2 years ago). I would like to start getting into coral but that is for another thread. My question is about adding a second clownfish.

The black and white as been alone for many years and is a pretty good size currently - therefore the fish must definitely be female. If I was to obtain a juvenile ocellaris (the typical orange and white) would I be able to add a sexually immature one that would pair with the black and white successfully (or at least co-exist)?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
