3-Spot Domino Damselfish hosting??

I recently got some green Gonipora (Flowerpot). This morning when I looked at my tank, my 3-Spot Domino Damselfish had entered into a relationship with it! I didn't know these Damselfish did any hosting at all.

Anyone else ever hear of such a thing?

This is the first symbiotic relationship I've ever experienced in my tanks. I have a clown too, but no Anemone, so he's not hosting anything right now.

Dominos are very prone to hosting in anemones... You will get one of them to host sometimes when the clowns will not....A lot of damsels will host anemones.. it is in their genes.. They are relatives of Clownfish or visa versa...
