    I have heard that clown fish are very aggressive fish. Have you ever had any encounters with them while you were diving?

    What? You have got to be kidding me! Nemo, he is aggressive? Why do they act like this? Are they only aggressive if you are messing with them?

    They will not hurt or bite you but yes they are quite aggressive. If you approach they will swim towards you and swim between you and their home (the anemone), all they are doing is trying to defend their home to what they perceive as an attack.

    It can be quite fun as they will get right up in front of your face at times, possibly they can see the reflection of themselves in your mask.
