Today I notice my 2 darwins I guess laying down senority, the one clown has a really banged up tail fin and the other is untouched, it seems however they tolerate each other as they swim together and I don't see them during the day Chase each other so this must be happenig at night, I placed a few more tubes etc so he can hide or go sleep somewhere else for now l, am assuming this is normal behavior. They are both very young from the same tank.

If they are both from same batch don't assume they will bond. You may end up with I single. If there isn't a deffinent difference in size I would recommend finding a bigger fish or proven female to pair with one of your little ones.
As for your set up the forty split into 4 compartments is fine however the filtering you have in picture would not obvisouly work with 4 10s so keeping that in mine if you have 4 seperate tanks it does give you an added level of protection from disease being transferred through a single tank.
Good luck with your venture.
