Based on a recommendation from my LFS
, two weeks ago I purchased a bubble-tip anemone for my two-saddleback clownfish. The anemone appears healthy (open and gets plenty of light), but the clownfish want nothing to do with it.
I found a compatibility chart online that says only Sebae and Stichodactyla mertensii anemone are compatible with my clowns. My local LFS
assurred me that the clowns would use the anemone. Is there anyway to get the clownfish interested in the anemone? Would I be better buying a second, compatible anemone, and adding another clown that is supposed to be compatible with the bulb-tip?
