OK BIG PROBLOM.....VERY VERY CONFUSED

Ok so ive had a pair of maroon clowns with a rose anemone for over a month now, and today i came home to discover that the larger clown was killing the other one, she is constantly chasing him and ripping his fins to shreds...They have allways been very happy together and now this?? I checked parameters just in case something was extremely off but everything is good including temp...What is going on?

Maroon clowns are hard to keep together unless they are tank bred and introduced at the same time, and even then it's not a sure thing. I've been researching them as my next addition for a while.

I"m a SW noob, but have been told maroons are the most aggressive clowns you can get.

unless they are a mated pair(wich i hear is hard to find), one of them is gonna get mad at the other one and then war will break out.if they are both still alive you should take the one getting beat up out and qt it until it looks and acts healthy again and then trade it in at your lfs or donate it to a friends tank.i say this because the meaner fish will kill it or stress it enough that it will die

Once again, I've heard you can keep a pair of tank bred, just not wild caught.

Sounds like dominance may have been established. It the way of the Clownfish. Lets hope it continues.

I hope that it works out and they've reached an agreement between the two of them!
