I have two frog spawns in my tank and the clowns love them. Does not cause any damage to the frog spawns at all. I also have a rose BTA which the clowns housed after 2 days of it being in the tank. I also have 2 green BTA which the clowns housed literally in 15 minutes. Clowns love them all! Although some clowns that have been tank raised have never seen them and may not house right away if ever. But, most of the time they will eventually, I would start with a frog spawn and one anemone and go from there. I have two sets of clownfish (one from my 35 gallon, one from my 46 gallon) I put both of them into the 120g. The black and white ones had never seen a spawn or nem before, but my orange clowns shortly taught them what it was to house, and now all 4 cant get enough of there homes. Normally clowns will protect there home, but luckily they have more homes then there are clown in my tank so they all share

I have had the best luck with carpet anemones. They will usually stay on the floor if ur lighting is good and clowns love them!!! It took not even a minute for my onyx clowns to find it

I have green BTA's and 2 black clowns in my 40gal reef. It took almost 4 months for them to figure out what the BTA was, and now they go in and out but they dont stay with it at all times, they do enjoy swimming around the tank.

My other tank with a green BTA and 2 orange clowns, nothing happens, they couldnt care less if the BTA is there or not, instead they just like to attack me when I need to get my arm in there to move a coral or rock...

Tank raised clowns it hit or miss if they host it or not, I got my black ones to start hosting by taping a picture of other black clowns inside a BTA to the side of my tank (yes it sounds silly but I did it) and I also started to feed the clowns near the BTA so they would get used to them being so close, and once I used the picture it took them only 3 or 4 days to start hosting the nem all the time.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you have an electrical problem!
