Clowns and Hosting

Recommended Posts

Wife and I are picking up our new clowns this weekend.  Long story short.  She absolutely doesn’t want an Anemone.  

Thoughts on a bigger biggish coral for the clowns, hoping they will host in it? I’m sure they will host in just about anything but would like to find a big coral to give them the opportunity to chose. 

Thought and Opinions...

Elegance?

I'm sure you have your reasons on not wanting an anemone.  I don't do BTA's either.  I have had our clowns in an LTA for a couple of years now which is nice.  They don't split or move and they don't wave around in the breeze as much despite their name.  Euphyllia work well too or even GSP.

I had one decide to take up residence in a large mushroom once (check my profile pic).  Wouldn't think that is a reliable choice though 😃  Euphyilia sounds like a good option and there are often some decent sized colonies for sale on here.  Seahorse also had a ton of them when I was in there last weekend.

I was wondering how long you would be able to hold out [emoji3]
I tried.. man I tried. But after like the 8th time.. I just couldn't help myself. NO.. your clown fish cant host an anemone. Nothing hosts an anenome... nope, wait, take that back. A pom pom grab DOES host anenomes.

There just isnt a good word for it because the guest is deciding if he wants to stay with a host.

maybe "shelter in" is the most apt description? But it's not really sheltering as it is a mutuslistic relationship.

How about... "will my clown feed his slime coat to..."

There HAS to be a word!!

Clowns will host in anything.  

We did go check out Jeff’s this AM and he got  Nice shipment in today! We saw plenty of awesome corals! We will wait a week or two until I figure out what I wanna get.  

I'm sure you saw his AMAZING elegance corals.  They are huge, fat, and healthy.  Might be an option.
