So my clown was murdered last night. Any suggestions as what I should do with the remaining one? A cruel and unusual punishment is the first thing that came to mind.

...you do realize they're fish, right? Punishing the other clown for being a fish - an aggressive fish, as clowns are damsels - is not the choice that many others here would make.

Don't rule out the fact that the smaller one was sick anyway. I've had experience with a pair for 3 years. When one got sick, the other would harass the other to no end. Took the smaller one/harasee (new word) out and treated it. When it was well, I returned it to the main and the larger one ran to great it and they were fine for the next 4 years. Not unusual to have a fish know another is sick LONG before you know.

Do not punish the remaining fish!! She was just doing what fish do. Try a new, much smaller mate.
