Damsel V damsel

I added a 4 stripe damsel to my tank today, previous inhabitants - 1 clown fish and a blue damsel.
Blue damsel only been in for about 4 weeks but is totally pestering the new damsel. I know damsels are renowned for being aggressive little monsters- which is why i chose another damsel- will they ever be able to live in harmony ? Will new damsel grow some balls and defend himself ?!
Poor new damsel now hiding in a corner of tank . :-(

Eh, ok! Well that's brief and to the point I guess....How does anyone end up with more than one or two damsels then ? I didn't want to add too many fish at once when I started.

Ok, thanks. My damsels are both babies, only inch long maximum and first damsel has only been in tank for about four weeks. Will keep my fingers crossed. I also added some new live rock and changed landscaping slightly to provide territories for them both.
I think there is marginally less nipping and just mostly tail swiping today..... Or maybe am just trying to convince myself- lol!
Four stripe damsel has been allowed out of his corner for now. He is certainly not allowed near the leather finger though !!
