    Could be due to limited tank space, how long have they been in there together?

    Are the clowns hosting the anemone? What were they hosting before you added it?

    Could be the clowns are being protective over their anemone, or, they could be protecting a batch of eggs that have been laid?

    Moves the nenie to the side of the tank after putting the clowns in the sump for a while. Hopefullt they can get along with other tank mates again and hopefully the nenie likes the new place. uploadfromtaptalk1468772949236.jpeg
