angry tamato clowfish

Hallo Reef Central everyone. This my first post and new to the community

I have pair of tamato clowfish but i don't know why the female always put my coral to the ground and attack another fish.

My tank have 2 anemone and qauite a few coral and did not see female spawning im my tank.

I didn't have more knowledge for the saltwater fish so any advice would be appreciated.

What size tank? Tomatoes are pretty dominant and will guard their territory, not uncommon behavior

Tank size as requested above, but quite normal for this territorial fish.

Tomato clowns are known to be very aggressive, it's just their nature.

Angry Tomato Clown? Is there such a thing as a happy one? They are arguably the most aggressive of the clownfish.

My tomato clown does the same thing. It has taken over half of my 55 gallon tank. Any new coral or rock I add anywhere on her side of the tank, she knocks it over. Even if I glue it down, she knocks the stuff over before the glue sets up. I've seen videos of them knocking large pieces of live rock out of their way. Mine also can't stand sand near her anemone. She constantly brushes all the sand from her side of the tank away.
