Seems the battle is over *PICS*

Not sure if the war is won though. Things seem a little more settled in the Clown tank. There's still some hostility, but the two contestants were happily swimming with one another the other day, so I dunno.

Today, for some reason, everyone was out and about. Lots of clicking going on.

The fish that was getting the worst of the fight was being highly defensive and warning others off with deep basso profundo clicks and body rushes. Later, they all settled down (a bit) and I managed to get these (dirty glass) pics.

The pictures really show the variations in size and body shape.
