Edit to add: saw a royal gramma mentioned, my gramma was more aggressive than the dottyback. Which again is housed with a Clown with no aggression issues.

one of these guys?
that is the second one I've had and he is currently in with a mix of what could be called semi-aggressive fish, Maroon clown, midas blenny, eiblei angel, golden headed sleeper goby, a mandarin and damsel.
so far he only bothers the damsel, but nothing really serious.
The last one I had I eventually put in a 10 gallon by himself because he became so aggressive.
I guess different fish personalities???
also clowns can be pretty darn aggressive as well, and at the very least they certainly are not "wimps" and can easily hold their own against other fish.
clowns usually only get their butts kicked by other clowns.....LOL
