Black Clown and Ananomie

Hi all

I have a black clown fish, and i just recently purchases an ananomie for it. I've had it for about a week now but the clown still doesn't go in it. Is there anything i can do to get him in it. The ananomie is white and has purple tips on the ends. Thanks for the help

Im not an expert on anemones, But I do know that there are a few anemones that clown fish do not swim in. From your description, I think yours might be a bubble tip , and if I'm right (which I may not be) that type is one of the ones that clowns dont swim in.

yeah thats not a bubble tip its a condy, or condalactis i beleive from the caribean.

Clowns have prefrences, it may never host it it may in ten min. bubble tips however are good choices they are easier to care for than most anenomes and clowns do like them

corect there is no way to hurry the process if it happens at all, the anenome is ok, but isn't the best choice, the anenome needs light and food feed it 2-3 times a week pellets work, but larger food items are best, it is ok to move it but you must be carful not to damage it's foot, also there is a good chance that it'll move back to the spot it came from.

brine dosent have a lot of nutritional value. anenomes will reprduce on there own. feed them often enough and make sure water quality and lighting is good and they will split\. The foot is the part that sticks and they use it to move.
