Hello I got two baby tomato clowns from the store today, I have a 100 gallon tank and I thought they would be fine considering they look very different from my already paired large clowns in my tank. My large clownfish pair instantly started attacking the baby ones. One of them made it to one of the free anemones and the other one was chased into a corner behind a powerhead. They are split up . Is there any chance of peace or should I attempt to remove the new clowns from the tank and bring them back to the store.

Let me know, any info helps

Didn't see until after that you had already separated.
They're pretty roughed up. I shouldn't have ever added them in. They're very small and I am hoping they are not too injured. I will be keeping them in the refugium until next weekend. Too much stress to bag them and reacclimatize tomorrow. They need to recover first
