Tryng to introduce a new tomato clown

I've had a tomato clown and a green bubble tip anenome for over a year now. They are doing great. I wanted to add another tomato clown to the tank (75 gallon), so I bought a smaller one which appears to be fairly young.

I'd say my original clown is approx 2-2 1/4 inches and the newbie is approx 1 1/2 -1 3/4 inches. I introduced the new addition approx 10 days ago and so far they aren't becoming pals. Is there a common term for bonding to occur? The little guy's fins are proof of aggression, but I don't want to pull him out too soon. Any advice or ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks,

So, no one has any ideas on this? I had hoped this was the appropriate forum area for such questions.

Not too sure on this one- but it will most likely take them a few weeks to bond. I would keep a close eye on things and be sure to keep up with regular feedings (of some quality foods- not just dry) so your larger tomato is comfortable and at the same time so there will be some food available for your new addition. My tomato's just spawned today! I think regular feedings (of small portions) is a major key to getting them to spawn - along with many other factors of course.

Give us an update on how things are going Scoots-

Best of luck.
