Probably, they are damsels anyway.

All clowns are aggressive, some more than others. I had a big tomato clown once that packed quite a punch when he hit you. I have been attacked by over a hundred at a time when trying to photograph a wild group of them inhabiting a 3' wide anemone. It's like being pecked to death by ducks.

Death by clownfish school attack.. Not as cool as death by great white shark attack, but I guess its unique?

As unpleasant as that sounds, I'd love to have been there.

You could try moving live rock around to give them something to think about. Just like you do with damsels. I now have an anemone for my clowns and they rarely stray far from it now but will defend the immediate area. My clowns are now laying eggs and very happy. I have damsel fish which are really annoying and i wish i had never bought them

I think I'm going to wait for my upgrade to rescape. I could live with their aggression for now. If it gets worse I'll try rescaping.

And this is why people fear clowns... Oj wait wrong type.

Anyway, moving rock always helps since they need to get re-acquainted with their surroundings. Clowns are very aggressive and territorial.

I still get upset whenever I have to take care of something in the tank and they bite me. Dirty little clowns!
