In have a Quarantine Tank which also serves as a Kintergarten, a Breeding Tank, and Spare Tank for occasions such as this. Its only 5 gallons but a great place to put distressed fish to calm down. I am not really in favour of those "cages" inside the Community Tanks. The "victim" fish can still see and be near it persecutor.

I would actually remove the aggressor rather than the victim. Give 'em two weeks in the "naughty tank". ;)
