Well monos are as you know relatively friendly fish and I don't believe you will have any trouble if your aquarium is of sufficient size for two monos.

The only concern that I can se is the fact that the old Mono has lived in the aquarium for some time and might there consider it as his. It can sometimes be hard to introduce new monos in an aquarium, an exception from their otherwise friendly nature. I would therefore keep a close eye on the new fish during the first few days and se if there are any problems. Rearranging the aquarium before letting the new Mono in can help reduce the risk for introduction problems.

Well in that case try to add all the new fish at the same time.
