False P Clowns and new Chromis

Hi all,

Well.. MY wife has been bugging me to add more fish to my tank but due to it's small size (45Gal) I knew I was limited.

I currently have 2 Clowns and a Coral Beauty. The tank is quite peacefull.


Last week, I added 3 small Green Chromis. MY clowns immediatly went on the offensive and It was a slaughter. 2 of the Chromis beaten and killed within 2 days.

However, for some reason they decided to leave one of them completely alone. It's untouched, his fins and body are perfect. I've been watching them all morning and they pay him no mind at all.

What should I do now?

Should I leave the 1 chromis is there for a while to see what happens? I know they are schoolies and I should have a minimum 3. But, I'd hate to keep adding more of them just to have my clowns turn evil again.
