Yeah, i do keep it as clean as possible. The only thing that's high are the nitrates which don't really affect fish. Everything else is zero. He's swimming like normal, and eating like normal too.. he just looks beat up. I'll keep an eye on him.

Also to help stop fighting cut off the lights and move some rock around. Works every time.

Melosu, that's exactly what i did. I cut the lights and they couldnt see eachother or something and they stopped completely.

Hmm.. maybe, but i dont know if hes sick. He looked perfectly normal the first couple days i had him. He swam, ate, and played around like a healthy fish would.

clowns are in the same family as damsals... and if anyone has taken care of damsals they would know.. they can be royal pains to eachother... you have a classic case of 2 fish fighting for dominance and territory.. 1 of 2 things will happen.. they stop fighting and take sides of the tank.. or one will die. thats unfortunately how this kinda stuff works.

Or the fact that they establish dominance, one becomes the female and they become a mated pair?

Well, come to think of it. Is there any consolation as to why they make these weird twitches whenever they are really close to eachother? It looks like they are vibrating in the water, and when they start to do that they just let themselves flow in the water while they are are still twitching. Maybe it's bad.. but i don't really think so because they do it alot.. lol.
