new fish getting picked on

I have a 75 gallon, i just added a percula clown and my 6 line wrasse keeps picking at him. The clown stays at the top left of the tank, and rarely moves out of the corner. the clown eats well as long as food gets into the corner. I have moved the rock around to try and disrubt the wrasses comfort zone, but he still goes out of his way to chase the clown back into the corner anything else i can try?

Just give it more time. 6 lines are pretty aggressive, but things should calm down in a few days.

I agree...seems like normal "new tank mate" bantering. It should settle down in a few days. Just keep an eye on the clown for any visible signs of injury.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
