Thank you! I am going to be uploading a video soon I took of them yesterday, keep your eyes peeled!

Here is a video I took a few minutes ago of the aggression. Occaisonally, there is some chasing biting. I'm thinking I may have to re-do the aquascape...

Ugggg, I am now thinking both Clowns may need to be rehomed. I only have this 29g now, and my old Clown still scares the Firefish and now he picks out the new Clown. At a total loss.

Take them out, rescape, and put them back. See if that helps.

Thanks!

Before I read your message, I had re-scaped the tank but didn't take them out while I did it. Do you think I should remove the nasty fish and try it again? Or would that not make much of a difference at this point. I was hoping my little rearrange would help curb his aggression towards the filefish, but it hasn't He may have to go. If you remove the aggressive Clown, do you think my passive one will end up aggressive eventually?

Thank you!

Glad to hear it. Sometimes you just have to let things be for a few days to be sure. I've found the first 3 days to be roughest to get by. It makes me feel helpless and like I should be doing something but it, most times, works itself out. If they had continued that behavior for more than a week and the firefish was visibly hurt then I would have said remove the mean guy.

Thanks! The Firefish does not appear hurt at all, luckily, but the Clown still likes to show him who's boss a bit. That seems to be a bit better to though luckily!

Hi everyone! Long time no update! So, the "mean" Clown has settled down a bit, but he certainly isn't perfect. There is still some chasing/nipping/aggressive activity, but I feel like it isn't as bad as it was when the new guy was just introduced. It still worries me, I am not sure if this amount of aggression is still too much. I am thinking I will take a long video one day and you guys can see how often it occurs and let me know your opinion. The other issue is that my "mean" (Black Ice) Clown still hasn't let my Firefish relax much. It seems like whenever he comes out of his hiding spot, the Clown fairly quickly sends him back to the hiding spot. I did re-scape the tank but I made the mistake of not taking out the fish. I am curious as to if it will make a difference to take out the aggressive Clown and re-scape again, or if taking out the fish isn't as big of a deal as the re-scaping itself. I am quite pleased with my current setup, but will absolutely change it again to make the fish happier if need be! I would just need to try and get the aggressive Clown with a net....LOL.

I was at my LFS tonight and saw the cutest Emeralds! It reminded me of how much I love them! I am going to get one soon, hopefully this weekend or next! So many cute shrimp there too! In other good news, I am thinking a 29g-55g second tank around December/January as a second tank! I can't go as big as I had in the past because I would like to put it in my bedroom on the second floor. I really would love the 55g but just am not sure if that is a good idea on a second floor...hmmmmm! I hope!
