Ocellaris Clownfish Aggression

About three weeks ago I bought two tank raised ocellaris clownfish. They were doing awesome for a while, but the past couple of days, I've noticed the one is relentlessly picking on the other one. I know this is normally part of their pairing off, but it's been going on for like 4 or 5 days now. Should I be worried?

I think it can go on for weeks. How large is your tank?

They're most likely establishing dominance. Its not a quick process, if the one being picked on begins to look like its having a seizure its a normal part of the process. Just sit back and watch, your about to have a mating pair of clowns.
