Hes been alone for a week already in the new tank, I bet hes got his territory setup and any clown you add now will just be tormented and picked on until he dies from stress or jumps out of the tank.

My suggestion is leave him be they do fine alone and if hes killing his mates then theres no reason to waste money and fish lives anymore.

Not sure how you can say the water was fine, yet it was only partially cycled.

You're getting confused - it wasn't me who was talking about being partially cycled, that was someone else's post in my thread, I'm fully cycled.

Yeah this is exactly what I've decided to do, not worth trying anymore now.

Can't you take it back to the lfs and get two new ones?
My lfs would let me do that no probs.
It's worth asking,

Most LFS dont have a guarantee on any marine life if they do then good on them but everyone in my city does not even have a 24hr policy only an exchange/buyback system

They already replaced the one that died, I added that fish and within a day, it too died.

I haven't tried since, I think the current Clownfish is defending territory but yeah, I did have the idea of returning the one and getting a pair in one go.

As long as your water is ok they should exchange the one you have and pay extra for one more.

My first two fish was two tank bred clowns.
I got them home and the just fought till they both died. I have a video of them biting on to eachothers fins and spinning around.

Do you have alot of rock in your tank?
You could try changing it around and taking the clown out for half hour and then put it back. Might think it's in a new tank then.

I could but I think I'm happy with just the one now, he seems happy enough but on the other hand, I would like to see him with some company.

Thanks for your advice, I like the idea of removing him and moving the rock around.
