Very aggressive blenny

I have a very aggressive and territorial Algae blenny. He attacks my tomato clown and knocks down every piece of coral thats not firmly attached.
Almost all of my research on this fish tells of them being passive and skittish. Not bold and an aggressive.

He does not eat algae any longer. He stopped eating it about two weeks ago and now he only eats hikeri drop pellets. Water temp is 80f. He is quite healthy, very plump.
I was wondering if his diet our the temperature of the water could influence this behavior? Our is life just to good for him an he is being a glutton...lol
