I bought 6 Percs, had them in my QT, after about 2 days, 2 of them had seperated and never left each others side. I took 4 back, kept these two in QT for a little longer and then moved them to my DT.
I then did the same thing with 6 black occelaris

I now have a pair of orange Percs and a pair of black occelaris, often the 4 hang out together during the day but at night they seperate back to pairs of two in different spots in the tank

You don't want to purchase a large and small fish. The reason being that you have no idea how old the large fish is and whether or not she is passed her breeding prime. Buy multiple juveniles and let them sort it out.

How big is your DT? You very well may need to remove the 'extra' clowns at some point in time.
