I had 2 clowns and 2 anemones that we’re hosting both. The black eventually was taking over both anemones And attacking the little clown until it spiraled out of control and just died.

I’m very concerned has this ever happened to anyone or anyone known of this behavior?

since then no fish have died or showed signs of illness or disease. 3 weeks have passed

That is normal behaviour, the female bullies the Male, they should calm down after a while but sometimes the bullying goes too far and the Male dies.
