    thats quite a bio load for that tank, that also might induce some stress which could lead to death/disease

    Clowns are nippers, but it could also be a disease of some sort. Just because one fish has symptoms of a disease doesn't mean all the other fish in your tank have to be showing symptoms too. Some fish are hardier than others and are just not as affected by diseases.
