Mean Clownfish

So, ever since I added my smaller Clown, I guess the one I had before that is turning into a female, because she is very aggressive. Whenever I put my tank in the tank, she attackts it and bites it! She never used to do that before. Does this happen to anyone else, or is my Clownfish just really angry with me, LOL!

Ever since I got my tomato clown an anemone, he charges the algae scrubber and my hand whenever I have to reach into the tank.

Yep, unfortunately, they consider the whole tank as their territory, LOL! Thanks for your response!

Speaking of Clowns and Triggers, my Ocellaris in my other aquarium looks like a part of his tail was bitten off (it has grown back, but the outlining is kind of weird), is it normal for Niger Triggers to behave like this?
