    Pairing Lightning Maroon. Please help!!!

    I got Lightning Maroon few weeks ago. Nice big girl. Nice is perfect word to describe her. Knowing how aggressive and territorial this fish is mine is complete opposite. She is nice to all the fish in the tank. My Filefish sometimes gets in her flower pot where she settled in while she is in it and she is not showing any aggression. She was nice until yesterday when i introduced new lightning maroon half a size. My female attacked him really bad. I had to take new fish out before got killed. So from Angel she turned in to a killing machine
    I know Maroons are most difficult clowns to pair but what do i do now?
    I put new fish in acclimation container in same display tank for now. Female can see him and time to time bites container with my new fish.
    Where do i go from here???
    Do i have chances for them to bond???

    Put the female in the breeder box. Let the other one establish themselves in the tank. Then reintroduce in a month or so. White stripe maroon are very difficult to pair.

    I will if they will bond and will start laying eggs. I had my previous Designer clowns laying eggs. I got Wyoming Whits out of them.
