    I had one of those. He attacked my maroon clown, grew really quick and was always trying to escape. But it is one of the most interesting creatures to watch. Always active. When i finally decided to get rid of him he lifted a 1.5kg piece of live rock with him. He had a nasty habit of pulling off the excess silicone on the corners of the tank. Keep your eye on him.
