    You need to wait till lights out & the room is 100% dark - wait an hour & then switch the tank lights on the fish can't see & you should be able to catch the clown no problem

    The maroon will kill the true clown. So tonight is the night, take either one out. If you do not have a temporary place to put it, try the sump.

    Try putting a small galss pane in the tank, blocking a part of. fish can not see the glass that is in the water. So you can corner it.

    Anyway, does not matter what you do, if you want to safe the true clown life, you have to do it as soon as possible. As in tonight.

    like in NEVER.
    Decide who you want to keep, as Vatso said, and the other must find another home.

    Maroon clowns are a lot more aggressive that True. And they will only live together in a really big tank, like in more than 1.5m long tanks.

    Hey, that is a way to justify a new tank... Wonder if Minister of Finance will fall for that one...:)
