It’s just a clown thing. You’ll find this is a very common occurrence. So much so that it’s more rare to have clowns that don’t go full piranha on people lol

Whenever I stick my hands in the tank for maintenance, My clownfish will bite my hand like there's no tommorow, although it is very cute, why does he do this?

they are territorial and you are in his space. It’s not cute anymore once they get big enough for it to hurt!
