    Wow dude that's incredible. I can totally see this happening. Mine jumped clean out of the tank onto the floor one night trying to follow my hand out of the tank. I hope your eye heals up! Happy cleaning!.. ;)

    Curious thing about this hobby is that we're constantly getting new things to worry about.

    Not to disparage the OP but I wonder if the clown really bit him or if his eye was just injured by the impact of its body? Or do clowns have any sharp (or even just stiff) spines in their dorsal or other fins?

    I have to say, I've treated a lot of corneal abrasions over the years (I'm an eye doctor), but that one takes the cake! Just be thankful it wasn't a lion fish :)
