Came home to this today...



I was worried that my O. clowns weren't going to figure out what the BTA was. Then i came home today and bam...there she was...playing in it. I'm very excited about it. I know stuff like this is old hat to so many people, but it's really exciting for me. So i snapped a pic of her in there. It's been 2 days since the BTA was introduced. I don't know why she decided to go in there today but I did use the old "put the clown looking lettuce clip" by the BTA that i read about. So i don't know if that helped or not but nevertheless, i now have a BTA hosting an O. clown. Tear..

How did you get it to host? I have had my BTA now for two or three wks. And my clown will go and be in it for like 5sec everyonce and awhiel but wont stay. What can I do to get it to host?

not sure. What kind of anemone and clown do you have? It could be that your clown just isn't that interested in the type of anemone you have?

hmmmm. That combination has worked plenty of times before. There's really not a hole lot you can do to convince the clown to go into the BTA. I read about how someone on this board bought one of those lettuce clips that look like a clownfish, and set it next to the anemone. He said, "it sounds stupid, but the clownfish thinks it's a real fish and goes to check it out". Now, i'm not saying this strategy works or not, but i used it and when i came home today she was in the BTA. But other than that, from what i've read, it's just a waiting game. Sometimes, clowns just won't host either.
