    Even wild caught clowns don't always become hosted by stuff, plus clowns are well known for loving corals to death

    Mine both just make love to the glass...I think it a pet store thing....at night they hide under the water flow of the refugium....that's why I bought different corals hoping they would take to them....and the black one I got from the lfs was already hosting an anemone....but not any of mine

    My clowns tried to host a big 3" red shroom. The larger clown would lay sideways and wiggle violently on the shroom untill it shriveled up to the size of a dime. It would take a couple days before the shroom opened up fully and the clowns would do it all over again. One day the shroom let go of the rock and fell down between rocks and reattached where the clowns couldnt get to it. Smartest shroom I've ever seen lol

    Tank bred clowns will host anemones, corals, mag floats or whatever. It just has to be on their terms and not what we want them to do:mrgreen:
