Heh, I don't know a lot about other species of clowns (other than gold stripe maroons) but they pretty much behave/grow/act the same way.
Sometimes clowns will move and host different spots of the tank.
Let me post this to the mentors and see if some one can answer your question better than me.

Different clown species should not be housed together unless the tank is very large. What you are seeing is your much larger and more aggressive Cinnamon clown harassing the smaller more docile O. Clown. Eventually the Cinnamon will kill off the O. Clown. Cinnamon, Tomato, GSM, and a few other clowns are very aggressive and will harass to the point of death other fish. My suggestion is to remove one or the other.

Its never fun to have to banish a fish from your tank but in a case like this it is usually the best option.

How large is your tank? Adding another O. Clown (smaller then the one you already have) may be an option.

it is a 50 Gallon Bow Front- I only have other damsels that are pretty much docile unless Ditto attacks. A smaller O. Clown- any other opinions?

That would be your only options I believe unless someone else has and option.

well I mean- when I get rid of ditto, what kind of fish should I add? I mean sure another O.Clown would be nice, but since the aggressiveness is going to be removed from my tank, any options for fish?

Some damsels...How many and what kind. Clowns are damsels as well, but there are certain species of damsels that are more aggressive then others. How many fish exatly do you have in the tank?
