What to do with my clownfish?

I purchased a pair of ocellaris clownfish 2 months ago for my 75 gallon fowlr tank. They are both juveniles and about the same size. One of them has bullied the hell out of the other for 2 months now. I know this is normal but I was hoping it would have stopped by now. The one being bullied has looked really Stressed and sluggish lately. I'm guessing it will die if this continues.

Should I take it out and return it to the fish store? Should I just keep the one clownfish or can I get another one that's bigger perhaps? What should I do?

Return the one being bullied and buy a much much bigger clown of the same species

If you have a sump, you can keep them in there for awhile. Thats what I had to do. Although they still got bullied. So I bought a 29 gallon tank and set up another SW tank. I really wanted to keep my nemos..you can also try putting them in your tank at night when there is less activity.
