Mean Anthias. What to do?

My Barlett's Anthias has been terrorizing a pair of juvenile occelaris clowns for the last three days. I had to take apart the whole darn aquarium to catch her and she is now in a breeders net. There are two options. One is keep her there for a couple of days. Doing so would induce stress and she could become sick. The second thing I can do is take her back to LFS for store credit. She's a pretty fish and very active. If she weren't aggressive I would obviously prefer to keep her.
So far I am leaning towards taking her back. I have been told that keeping a single anthias was doable but it appears that she would do better in a school. My tank is too small for a school of anthias. Please advise.

Take her back. Hopefully they'll give you credit and get something else.

agreed, letting her be stressed is no good. Takee her back and let her find a new home!
