I recently purchased a pair of juvenile ice clowns, they were fine for a the first two weeks and then it turned ugly. I have isolated the abuser in his own tank.

The isolated clown looks kind of aimless and lonely (I could be reading too much into this).

Should I return him, or try something else, or just keep him in his own tank?

I'm not sure what the smart and ethical answer is.

Thank you

You could try to reintroduce under low light and see if it resumes the behavior and react accordingly
