My clownfish is bullying my new clownfish

I just bought 2 clownfish true perc i beleive and i already had a misbar occelaris clown in the tank for about 1 month before i added the 2 . The true percs are wild caught ( i want them to use my purple tip anemone) and as i was acclimating them 1 of the clownfish jumped out (the 1 thats getting bullied) and hit the floor about a 4 1/2 foot fall now i read that fish will pick on a weak fish so i dont know if the clownfish is displaying dominance towards my new cf or if the new cf is weak and hes picking on him the other new cf that i acclimated is doing great with my old cf but the new 1 is in the corner and looks like he doesnt wanna swim because of the big bully help pleaseeee!!!!!!!

Yup. Clownfish will pair up and kill a 3 rd clown. It won't happen right away if their all young, but once they mature you can only have a breeding pair in a tank. Unless its a big tank.
