I'm really frustrated, my yellow-tail blue damsel wont stop beating up my clown even if he isn't intruding on his territory at all. Could it be that it's because the clown is new and that they need to get used to each other? But I don't think that could be it, cause it looks really aggressive, like non-stop ramming into his side and nipping at the clown. AAAAA, I'm angry. =/

Kris,

Damsels are misnamed. They are really Da#$%els! My advice would be to remove the offending fish and not put another of its species in your tank. I'm not sure if you are aware of it but clownfish are also in the damsel family. This is likely the reason for the behavior.
