    Guy's, I bought a clarki clownfish today.I already have 1 which is about 2cm smaller than the new 1 I bought today.After releasing him into the tank,the smaller 1 began hammering him after which I put the new 1 into the sump.I know i should have bought a smaller 1 than the 1 I got,but the lfs did not have any smaller 1's.Anyway,apart from rescaping the tank,introducing him with other new fish,introducing him while feeding with lights off,what can I do.I am pleased to say the new 1 is recovering in the sump and also ate.Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    Hi Burt,that sound's like a plan.Problem is,when I introduced the new clarki,my koran angel also also bullied it.If I swap them,do you think he will notice the diffrent clarki.As I said in the 1st post,the new 1 is around 2cm's bigger.
