Aggressive clown

My true perc clown has been extremely aggressive to my hand when I move a frag around or mess with rockwork. He tries to literally bite off my fingers. Is there any way to get this little guy to calm down?!? I might have to turn him in and get another if not..

Not sure if there is a way to really "calm" him down. They are just being territorial. True percs are more on the aggressive side, so it doesn't really surprise me. I doubt they will ever calm down. If you encroach on their territory, they will defend it.

Lol, I freak out. The first time it happened, I got like a gallon of water on the floor. I guess I'll just be scared then.

Its gonna sound weird, and probably mean but, chase him with ur finger. Mine used to be really bad and now hes more curious of my hand than aggressive.
