Crazy Clown

For over a year I tried to get my ocellaris clown to host my bubble tip anemone. I finally gave up and bought a tomato clown that happily lives within its tentacles.

A few weeks ago I put a small plastic container in my tank to grow out some Xenia frags. Guess who has decided to make it his home. This clown basically lives inside the container now and swims all around it. If my tomato gets to close to it he defends it and chases his cousin away. Kind of nutty.

So don't expect your clown to host with the anemone you put in your tank. He may prefer a piece of plastic.
