I need a little advice from everyone, I have 2 oc clowns, the first one was in there for approximately a month before adding the second one. The first one I had in the tank was definitely the aggressor and the new clown fish was submissive right away, it's been almost 1-1/2 months and the new clown fish gets chased all over he tank and is no longer being submissive. To add to that it seems like the original clown has become buddies with my blue damsel and they are now attacking my cleaner shrimp and blood red fire shrimp. I have no clue what is going on and I'm completely lost! Help!

Are they similar in size? It's very possible that you have 2 females... Do they lock lips at all? If it were me, I would probably replace the aggressive clown with a smaller juvenile... Worked for me anyways. Sounds like you have your hands full :/

The original one that I have is larger. Noticibly larger, no lip locking

Not 2 females then. Idk man... I'm frustrated for you. Maybe remove the aggressive one for a few days then reintroduce? Don't know if that's the best idea or not... I'd say try that, or even putting the two of them in a breeder box together to get used to each other if they won't kill each other? If you try either of those and you are still having issues, sounds like you may need to replace one of them

Thanks for the thought, I'll see if there are any other suggestions or something I may be missing, if not then I'll possibly separate the 2
