Maroon clownfish are one of the most aggressive so while maybe not initially, ultimately almost certainly.

A Maroon Clownfish.
Don't try adding any other type of clown fish unless you want to waste your money and want to see the other clown fish die and I'm sure you don't want either one of those options.
Others have been able to keep all types of different Clownfish together in 1 system but it's a very low chance of that happening so just avoid the potential headache.

Another GOLD NUGGET will be perfect. Or just another maroon Clownfish. But you should go with another Gold Nugget.

DO NOT add any other type of clown fish. As Juan stated stay with a golden nugget or a maroon.

I suggest keep the lone survivor by itself, sell it and buy another pair. I personally would not add other clown with it. GN or maroon
