I have 2 false Percula Clowns. They went into the tank together and are the same size. But One of them is bullying the other constantly.Chasing and bumping into him.
Is this normal? Should i remove the aggressive one?? I thought these clowns are suppose to be peaceful towards one another.
Cheers Shane

Did you just recently add them? You may have two females, or they may just be working things out, determining who is going to be the boss (female).

Hi Shanie - I agree fully with Anemone. Give it a few days chance. IF this is a bullying scenario -then the one clown will cower and hide away between the rocks. They also show strange behaviour as courting time gets close.

Give it a few days, and then let us know what's happening?

Shanie: it is a natural part of the pair bonding, one will grow larger and become the aggressive female, whilst the other will be smaller, less dominant male.

Do you notice the smaller on submitting? Mine kind of go belly up and shake when the female is dominant, this shows submission.

Mine still do this, it's interesting to watch ;)
