wow, your clownfish are not very nice. LOL. I have to admit it would have been cool to see them drag the cleaner into the carpet.

This will repeatedly happen, it will also happen with other fish. My carpet at a very large lawnmower blennie and a small porcupine puffer. Yes, I know it did as it regurgitated the heads for some reason. (no one has ever been able to tell me if this is common or not)

Should I take out the anemone and let the clowns go back to the nice fish that they once were? They have been chasing my purple fire fish for a few hours now! I just dont know what to do! I got the anemone to make the clowns happy and just turned them in to crazy fish.

ok so i called the lfs, and the guy there told me that the clowns might try to be mate. (since they are in the anenome together)They were paired when i got them. To move them to a tank by themselves with the anenome and watch them. Any body else think this could be the case?

they do not need to be in a separate tank to have babies. In fact, that would actually probably just stress them further which you want to avoid. Unless you sole intent is to raise clownfish, you really don't need to isolate them like that. They will reproduce regardless. I would leave them and maybe consider returning the carpet if you want to have other things in the tank.

well i had to move them for the time being until i decide what I want to do with them. They were so aggressive that after they fed the anenome the 2 cleaner shrimp, they started going after the purple firefish and the manderin goby, even though they hadn't messed with the anenome. They are being very protective of it, which is why the guy at the lfs said they might be mating. Also why they keep feeding it stuff that that they are trying to "fatten" up the anenome to lay the eggs. It's the bigger clown that keeps up with feeding and protecting which from what I understand the larger of 2 clowns is supposed to be the female. Which would make sense if she is the one that's "nesting"

hmmmm, that's news to me. But it's totally possible i guess. Good luck in whatever you decide to do.

Yeah I have no idea either, but I do know it would be super cool if they did lay eggs and they hatched and made it!

Wow. Good thing you decided to move your clown fish. I had the same problem in the past and ended up losing allot of fish and had to do the same.
