Unhappy I have an Indo-pacific Seabae anemone and a Atlantic condi.

I have recently added a 12" Indo-Pacific Sebae anemone to my tank. My smaller well established Florida condi will not leave the Seabae alone. Even after I have moved him twice he contiualy moves in to contact with the seabae. He has even followed the seabae to the other side of the tank. Is this something to be concearned about or just let them live side by side. The tank is 55 Gal. with good lighting, water circulation a skimmer and great filtration system. My water quality is very high. They both are eating good and there hasn't been a change in either ones size or color. The Clarki clown that lives in the Seabae is on the constant mission to move any and all the the condi's tentacles that sray over to or on to the Sebae. What to do??????

55 Gal is way to small for 2 motile cnidarians of different species.

Probably not an option, but my first suggestion would be get a bigger
tank (125 gal if you want the two anomones in the same tank) or a second
tank.

Keep in mind these are two species that NEVER see each other in nature.
Each will "see" the other as competition and will either want to destroy
or run away from the other.

They are fighting?
I'd say move to another tank.....
interested to see if anyone has a good way of dividing them....
not a problem I have ever faced.
aggro anemone hunting another.
