Tomato Clown and purple damsel are too aggressive, should I pull them?

Are tomato clowns and purple damsels suppose to be aggressive? They bossed around my clarki clown and 6 line wrasse to death. I'm thinking of pulling them out, any advice on catching them?

Not a good idea to mix Clowns. Yes, Clowns and Damsels are mean.
What size tank is this?
If you keep them, you need to add tankmates that are aggressive as well.
I can give you suggestions when I know the size of your tank

yeah clowns can be ruthless to other clowns, its pretty much the same as with any other fish that isnt a schooling fish, they just cant happen unless there is a ton of room or a pair

Clownfish technically are damsels! But not all damsels are mean!
If you like your tomato clown, why not try and pair it up?
Just when I thought you couldn't be any dumber you go and do something like this....And totally redeem yourself!
