    Should be fine unless it is a maroon clown. Clownfish can be kind aggressive to other clowns at times but adding them both at the same time will make the aggresion less or non exsistent. Firefish and the pajama cardinal are great choices and almost any shrimp is good with clowns.

    If you do decide on another clown, make sure you have plenty of hiding places and make sure that the clown is the exact same species and the new one has to be smaller than the current one.

    They will fight aggressively like their going to kill each other on the first few months.

    1st-Clown find another clown and attacks them until the smaller one or the weaker one gives up.

    2nd-after giving up, the bigger clown will ask the smaller on to be it's mate.The bigger one will spaz a little bit. lol (bigger all so changes to be a female)

    3rd-The smaller one usually refuses so the bigger one will attack the smaller one until it agrees

    4th-They become a pair

    5th-bigger one find something to host to

    6th-bigger one will attack smaller one until smaller one gives up and stay with each other with the hosted object(doesn't have to be anemone. Usually other corals or powerheads)

    Bigger=female Smaller=male
    All clowns are born male
