My maroon clown drew blood

Ok so here's the story and I was redecorating my tank my pair of maroon was swimming around my hand then all of a sudden my female strike my hand and a laughed but when i pulled my hands out i was missing a little bit of my skin and it was bleeding.

Why the sudden aggression they have never done this before they never really care about what i was doing in the tank but this time they attack and now everytime i go in i get attack. They dont even attack my other fish only me.

maroons get territorial as they mature.

It's payback for all that fish you ate at the last neighborhood fish fry.

What a maroon Nemo isn't exactly the nicest fish this side of the reef either. The A. ocellaris' at work will attack our masks with ferociousness until that person leaves the water and with clownfish the aggression heightens when paired and especially when courting. Really, about the only clownfish I haven't seen to be as aggressive are the skunk clown varieties.

lol...

Maroons are very aggressive and territorial. My LFS has a pair of them in their large coral display tank and everytime they reach in to get a coral they are tagged by the female maroon.
