Need Advice on Clows Fighting

Alright should I be worried they been like this for a couple weeks now and to me it seems like there is way to much bulling between the larger one to the smaller one? Now I feel like maybe they may be different an actual True Percula and a O.Clown but How can I tell? I remember buying the smaller clown the next day at a petco and they had them as False Percula Clowns my Ocellaris was Wild caught as a baby as stated by the LFS owner which I paid a hefty amount for that one I believe it was my first clown in the tank, but check out the Video and you be the Judge...

I was just watching my clowns and the Larger of the 2 is being very Aggressive and this little guys fin are all beat up as well as the sides of him. Should I remove him or let nature take its course?

Mine does the same thing, the female will harass the male sometimes. Why, I have no idea. His fins aren't torn and he doesn't show signs of being bitten or anything. She will sometimes bite him but I don't see any wounds. I've read that female clowns will nag male clowns to the point of stressing him out. It's not like their hungry or anything.
