Add a 2nd Clown?

I have 1 Ocellaris Clown now, and have always been told to not add a 2nd as they need to be introduced at the same time.

Why is this?
Could I add a different species of clown?

You can add a second clown and you definitely want it to be the same species. How large is your current clown? Generally clowns left alone will become females. Assuming this is the case you want to add a small juvenile ocellaris and they should pair up just fine.

24"x24"x24" Rimless Starfire 60g Cube
Apex Lite, SWC 120 Cone, Ecotech Radion XR30w, MP40
Magnifica Anemone focused Reef
Yellow Spotted Kole Tang, Orchid Dottyback, Mandarin, Multibar Angel, Ocellaris Pair

OK, cool. Right now my setup is a 30G Biocube. The current Oce. is about 1" - 1 1/2" in size.
