I'll probably just get rid of it. My clown fish are very large and I'd hate to have this fish take revenge when it's larger lol
Thanks for the help!

Haha that's sweet that they lay in your hand. My clown fish won't bite me but they bite my husband every time he puts his hand in the tank. they probably don't bite me because I'm the one that feeds them.

I am in the same boat. After I added a smaller Clownfish, My bigger one likes to attack me whenever I put my hand in the tank. "Don't attack the hand that feeds you" LOL.
