My Sixline used to be aggressive to both of my Clowns. I think yours won't be as aggressive if he is the last fish added. Maybe mine was just born mean.

Ive heard that they get hungry often and if they aren't fed when they want they'll get aggressive to the tankmates. I have never had one but I've been on different forums that have said that.

I feed mine every other day. Never had any aggression. I actually had to remove a bicolor dottyback because it was bullying my sixline. Sixline had been in the tank for years, bicolor wasn't even in the tank for a week.

Love mine, had him for over a month now, he is very tame, in a 72g with 2 o.clowns, 1 lawnmower blenny and 1 blue assessor. I had it in a QT with a dottyback that I gave to LFS because it was mean. Great addition to the tank, he comes over to me when I'm at the tank and I usually give in and feed him. Always swimming about.

They will only jump if they are stressed from what I'm told

I keep a cover on my QT and on the DT for the first week that I put a new fish in, that way they get used to the tank and if they get scared and jump they are safe.

I have had one for a day and I don't know where he went I haven't seen him in about five hours now. I know he will hide but yesterday and this morning he came out every few minutes.
