Clowns:If and when to break up a pair
I received my australian b&w clowns about 6 weeks ago and just recently they have started to "bicker". I figured they would work out their differences in a week or two but it's going on 3 weeks now and the little one never seems to be able to catch his breath, the big one harasses him half the day. :-(
The larger one does the laying on its side and shaking thing- this is a dominant trait, yes? How long do I give them to stop bickering before i move one to another tank? I'd love to keep them together though if possible but don't want the big one to hurt the little one.
Any insights or experiences guys? I haven't had this issue before and this is my third set of clowns.....

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
