I'm not sure if he will get stung but he might if the rabbit fish gets tired of it and fights back. He may cause it to become very stressed out as well.

I had a snowflake blenny that I eventually rehomed due to aggression. It would attack anything that swam near it and it got to the point where he would attack my hand every time I had it in the tank.

Unfortunately since they have their own personalities there is always the chance of getting an aggressive one.

I wouldn't have minded if he only did it while looking for food lol
