Occelaris aggression?

Right now in my 40 gallon, I have a pair of black occ clowns, a chinstrap jawfish, yellow watchman and pistol and an indigo dottyback. When I upgraded my other 40 to my 120 system, I took out about 4 fish from black occ's tank. I decided over the weekend that wanted a potters angel. I put him into my current 40 and yesterday I noticed my clowns completely destroyed my poor angel. all his fins are ripped (badly). I managed to catch the potters and put him into my big system and he appears to be just fine. Are occ's that aggressive? I have a very big pair of maroon clowns in my big tank that bother no fish, just me when I stick my hand into the tank.

From what I've seen in the lfs and friends tank the black ones can be a right bully when they want to be.
