    Good Evening all, i added a photon clown to my tank (i have 2 other clown fish as well) today i noticed my bigger clown ( of the original two) is being super aggressive towards his old friend ( the smaller of the original two), but fine with the new photon. Is the sex change change that i have read about taking its course or is three a crowd. I have seen lots of tanks with more than two clowns and never thought it would be a problem.

    Thanks

    How old are they?

    And how small is the newest one?

    It can be that the biggest is changing to female and forcing the oldest smaller one to bend the knee. And he is yet not prepared. Will learn quickly.

    The small Photon is about 1 cm , the bigger ( agro one ) is about 5cm and the smaller guy( bullied oke) is about 4cm. They all eat fine together if that is worth adding.

    Thanks
