you could always catch your clown and then release it

I think my domino damsel is beginning to get aggressive towards my clowns. The female is big enough to defend herself, but the male is now hiding behind my filter inlet. Time to donate the damsel

At least the damsel gets bullied by the flame angel sometimes. Karma

If you have a QT, you can just move the clowns over after they get caught, and reset the trap for the damsels. The QT shouldn't have decorations, so you can more easily catch them to put them back when the damsels are captured.

I've used the fish hook method and caught unwanted Damsels and as long as you pinched in the barb you should have no problems.
PS: Just be sure to draw your drapes close or you might end up in the hospital........mental ward. LOL

Happy Reefing,
