OK so a quick backround I've had this Talbot damsel since I've gotten this hobby. Now he was in my very first tank. When I decided to build a reef tank with a different tank I decided to set up the old tank in my other room for him and another damsel to go in. Since then I've added a maroon clown, a puffer( witch he harrased to death), a flame angel ( witch also didn't make it in the tsnk with this mean fish) and lion fish who is doing fine everybody just lets him do his thing.

About 1 1/2 weeks ago I bought a yellow stripe maroon to try and pair with my other maroon clownfish. Since putting him in the tank he have been getting beat up buy this damsel and since the two clowns started hanging out hes beef fighting with them both.

Now i have nowhere to put him and nowhere will take him i tryed everywhere. What should I do???

I'm pretty sure your LFS would like donated fish.

Private LFS usually takes any fish. Very strange indeed.

My damsel did the same to my percula clowns. I got a lionfish and he took care of the problem lol You can euthanize the damsel or burn it with fire. Both ways kill it fast enough for him not die while slowly suffering.

This 5 dollar fish has cost me like 125 bucks already in the fish he's killed. So now not only is he killing my tank now he's killing my gas tank. I'll call the lfs today and see what they say

Put it up on craigslist. If I was closer I would get a tank just for him. I really like that damsel. My lfs has one in a 75 gallon tank by itself, it isn't for sale lol guess it is a bully and they don't want anyone to sell anyone the problem.
