    Hi all, I have a pair of tank raised clowns (one onyx ocellaris and one picasso) going on a year now. I put a beautiful big fat red bta in there a month ago. 0 interest. I put up pictures of other clowns in nems (which seemed ridiculous to me, but didn't hurt to try) Ive been feeding directly...

    Since I haven't posted any pictures in a while I figured today's little discovery was a perfect reason to do so. A few months ago we rescued a green BTA from a not so well maintained LFS. It's just a mom and pop type place in a very small neighboring town and the owner is either unwilling or...

    I thought you guys would like to see this. I apologize for using my iphone for pictures. It doesnt do justice for the nighttime shots. Last Tuesday i moved my rocks and got my gorgeous bubble tip anemone (Rosey) back to the front of my tank. Within 2 hours of being there my clown fish finally...

    Hi guys, and welcome to my thread on my method of introducing a clown fish to an anemone. I'm making this thread because I haven't seen a good way to get an anemone to host clown fish that is both safe and effective. The most popular method that I have read about involves putting the anemone and...

    Since I've been boarded up safely inside out of the negative numbers today, I've just been gazing dreamily into my tank! My clowns have found my frogspawn and are mildly loving on it. They're contemplating spawning and dancing in different areas of the tank, one of which is under the frogspawn...

    Hi guys I have a question I got a pair of wild caught clownfish from lfs they are almost 2 years old they are really healthy, when I got them I put them in my tank and they hosted my bubble tip anenomes ( by the way I have 5) after 2 hours... Then after the 3 day they stopped why all of a...

    Hey guys. So yesterday I moved my corals around a little bit to make better use of space. Anyways, I have two clown fish in my tank that have hosted a hammer coral. When moving my corals around, I decided to move the hammer to a more open area because of how fast it is growing. When I woke up...

    It's a cruel reality that clownfish are happy in a tank that is too small for anemones. I've been doing some reading, and I'm having trouble articulating why nems can't survive in a small tank. In fact, the guy I get my coral from has a bunch of them in his 14 gallon. From what I've read, some...

    Howdy Folks, I've read a bunch of things about 'nems. I'd like a BTA, but I've got a 20 gallon tall. I've read BTAs can get up to 14" across, and that is definitely too big for my tank. I've also read on other forums that 20 gallon is sufficient for an anemone. Is there a consensus opinion...

    I wasn't sure it would ever happen but one of my true perc clownfish, Clara, is now being hosted by my RBTA. Also Frank has been trying to join the group but Clara hasn't allowed that quite yet but I'm hoping she soon will. I'm also thinking that they have paired because she has grown to about...
  14. Anemones
    I got my new carpet anemone last week, which already had a Clarkii hosting with it. After I got it established in my tank, the mouth is always open. My clown likes hosting with it, but at times he loves to actually get down inside the nem's mouth. It seems a little weird to me. What do you think?

    Will clowns host in mushroom anemones, or only actual anemones?

    ok, so my dumb clownfish started to host my duncans, but i don't think he realizes that they are way too small for him so he is really awkward around them and its really funny to watch. Ill try and post a video a little later, cant get it to work right now

    I have a 45g bow with and Ocellaris, One dot gold stripe maroon, and misbar caramel clownfish. Last week I added a LTA and the maroon clown hosted it almost immediately. Yesterday I added a BTA and now the maroon clown is hogging that one up too and it seems to be protecting both of them. Can...

    Our clowns are just babies, and they tend to hang out near a yellow sea whip or the power heads or just suspend in the tank. Well today the larger of the two started hosting in some coral (forgot name please Id if you can). I'm assuming it is hitting puberty so to speak as they usually hung...
