I want more fish

Right now all I have is a pepermint shrimp and a fire clown in my 37gallon tank. My clown is very aggresive and I'm scared to put any other fish in there, I'm scared even to put my hand in the tank. Do you have any ideas on what I should do?

Good advice with removing the more agressive fish for awhile then adding him back in.

That is one of the most irresponsible things I have ever read. For the sake of any others reading, this is not an acceptable way to curb aggression, nor is it even remotely humorous.

I hope that is a joke, as bad of a joke as it is.

Thanks for the advice, would you recommend any certain fish that would be good in my tank?
