No, he does not have a host anemone, but only attacks me on "his" side of the tank. I have had lots of aggressive fish before (puffer, clown trigger, etc) I have NEVER had this happen. I have a killer percula!

My clowns have been biting me lately.. what I have found that helps is to feed them directly on the opposite side of the tank than what you are working in.. It was kinda Cute when it first started happening but after a while it started to get a bit painful.. I dont know if they were just pulling hairs in my arm or what but there has been a few times that felt like they had some pretty sharp teeth..
