Kinda like when my girlfriend was wanting to get married and fighting me like crazy (no biting thankfully) when I gave in and asked her to marry me she started to chill out now we love each other. And I guess there was a little shaking going on at the club during the initial attraction phase as well LOL

haha i first saw this thread and it reminded me of my clownfish, i have a maited pair but when i put my hand in the tank to clean or something the male hides and the female bites me! you know at first it was just kinda bumpin my hand saying "get out my tank!" (they were the first added) But now i can feel her little mouth nip at my hands and its actually starting to hurt a bit. Its really annoying when im trying to move corals and she comes outta nowhere and scares me and i drop it. My mom and brother used to laugh at me saying "big bad lacrosse player gets beat up by the little fish" and other such mockings but then i made them clean the tank and they never gave me crap again...I was going to try and get a video, its actually funny to watch as long as its not your hand!

I've watched my A. percula grow from tiny little fish to a mated pair over the last 3 years. They are always fun to watch. Fortunately I do not get bit too often when I'm doing maintenance in the tank.

I have an adult maroon clown that I've raised since he was a baby. He lived with only a mandarin goby in a 30 gallon coral tank.He never bothered the goby. he got moved into the 210 gallon and just chills. and every new fish we have put in he has left alone. Just a real mellow fish i guess. Did i get lucky?

My tank has a violent clown as well... he shoots out from his little cave to bite my hand. Really annoying when I'm moving stuff around.

my friend got a clown and he kept it as a pair, it stressed the other one so bad it died, then he bought two more, and they didnt last with it either;

his clown (occ.) is unbelievably angry its nuts- he has since chilled out a lot though, but it could have had to do with him adding an angel fish and him taking over "big dog on the block" status.
