If you would like to have a second bird, go for it! However, you never know, even with two of the same species, if they will get along or not. There's enough size difference between a Sun and a GCC, that you'd want to supervise carefully at least at first. You'll definitely want separate cages.
That said, I have 3 very different birds and I think they do get a sense of having a flock around them just from being able to see and hear each other. The cages are all in the same room, and they will contact call back and forth when one is in another room. So I think they do get some security when we aren't home from having other birds around.
