Clowns keep fighting...

So my clownfish keep fighting each other One of them looks like he's starting to get a pretty tender nose. Any suggestions? Both bought at the same time from same place.

Push come to shove you might have to get rid of one. Are they the same species or different?

They are fighting for dominance. The big one will win eventually and become a female. However if they are of a similar size they may fight until one dies. What size are they?

Well, one is noticeably bigger then the other (assuming that one is the female). But the bigger one is the one who's getting the tender nose. Looks to me like the smaller one is winning

I would say that if one is obviously bigger than you won't need to worry. Give it a few more days and it should settle down.
