Clown fish help???

Hey all so I got a mated pair of clarkii clowns from my LFS well I put them in with my BTA and now the female clown will have nothing to do with the male clown she just runs him off.. Has this ever happened to anyone else with a pair of clowns? Any help will be appreciated cause worried about the health of the male.. This is the male under his new rock and the female in her BTA..

I have a mated pair of maroon yellow banded clowns I was told there better of with no nem to host less aggressive against tank mates, and they'll just host a cave which they did together and so far seems true they even share there cave with a coral beauty angel ,

I'm so sorry it would be better if you bought 2 small mated clowns first so they will get used to eachother.
