Clownfish aggressive

So had these clownfish about a year now and the last month or so the female has been real aggressive towards the male and keeps grabbing his tail and holding onto it and sometimes shaking him. Anyone got any clues as to why

Well obviously he is not doing what she wants. If it continues do you(anybody) think I should move him to my other tank and find her a new mate

exactly when do any of us guys do what the females want ?

clowns may look aggressive during the spawning period it's just a part of there nature. nothing to be concerned with this is a mating dance the female is showing the male she wants his attention.

this is a perfect time to experience the other side of these fish something to cherish as their bond is just beginning .

if you start looking around the tank you should start to see eggs on the glass or undersides of rocks . this is when you see both clowns taking turns brushing the eggs.
