How about some punctuation. Your post is very hard to read the way it is written.

I would take the 3 stripe damsel out and put it in QT or take it back to the LFS. They are notoriously aggressive and will continue to torment your clown if he is already doing so. How big is the clown compared to the damsel? Usually maroons are pretty aggressive and i'm surprised the damsel is beating him up unless he's much bigger. HTH

I would bet that before too long he will pick one anemone to call home and stop racing back and forth.

Tripper - no kidding!

I'm so tired of trying to decipher, "lemme give u..." and "if u r going to..." in today's writings. People have become so lazy that can't even push the shift-key to start with a capitol letter! Either that or they don't have sufficient command of the language to write properly.

I actually had a head hunter email me..."plz lemme call u at yer convenience." Sure, I will. Very scary.

What does this have to do with the topic at hand? I think the first rant was more than sufficient. Keep on subject or don't post.

My only concern (Having chewed through 3 different anemones) would be the one you want to move. If your other tank isn't in the shape it needs to be in to hold the other anemone its going to croak. Personally, Im way envious that yours split! Thus far I've been through 2 BTAs and 1 LTA and all have croaked on me. Needless to say I have written them off. Honestly though, its not uncommon for clowns to want to claim all the anemones for themselves. They cruise from one to the other as they wish. Not sure it will hurt anything and unless there is violence involved, I wouldn't change a thing!

GL!

The maroon clown will likely claim both anemones as "home" eventually and become territorial. Damsels though, being related, are pretty tough too. FWIW mine has now claimed three BTA's as home.

I think you should leave the anemones be.

As far as the Damsels go, bring them to your LFS. No need to keep them "boxed up" in QT if they don't fit into your system. They are what they are- you can't change that. HTH

I agree with everyone else, leave the anemones in but remove the damsel and take it back to the LFS. Placing an aggressive damsel in with another aggressive one is unfair punishment for both....they are well known for being trouble and should not be expected to act differently or punished for this behavior.

My BTA turned into 9 and my false perc pair spawn in the middle of all of them.
