Lonely Damsel??

I've had a pair of yellow tail blue damsels since I set up my tank about 3-4 years ago. They used to lay eggs every few weeks, none ever hatched but they kept at it. Anyway, I just found my female (Tiny) dead yesterday. She somehow got herself stuck between two rocks??? I'm wondering if my male (Jack) will react negatively. He's already really agressive (Jack is short for Jackass) and I'm hoping he won't get worse. I just got a peaceful Spotted Mandarin who's started eating frozen food and I'd hate to have him be the brunt of Jack's attacks if he gets worse. Has anyone had a similar situation?

GO PATRIOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would get rid of the damsel, their more trouble then their worth. I thought my yellow tail damsel was cool intill he attacked my dwarf angel. It took a freaken day to get him out!
