Battle!

So, I sold my purple Ritteri and my unpaired pink skunks are cohabitating in my big yellow Ritteri with a pair of Rods Black Onyx Percula. Itís a busy anemone with constant squabbling. Should I try to remove the pink skunks, or will they eventually come to terms?

Normally aggression would escalate from here, personally I'd say it's time to make a choice of which pair to keep

It escalated! Got my purple Ritteri back and hoping things are better. The pink skunks were beating my percs!

If it were me, and only because you have so much space to work w/, I'd take the mag and wave it next to the squabling pairs, try to shoo one pair into it, and carefully move that nem about as far away from the other as possible.
Hopefully they stay, and hope you did not waken the beast so to speak on territorial issues.
