Carpet Anemone Doing Well

Ok, So some of you may remember my old topic when i first got my carpet. He had is foot sucked down onto some LR.


Now, Since then, he has moved abit and found his spot im assuming, He has dug his foot deep into the sand bed under a rock i think. His just below where he was in the first pic. I got a pair of juv black and white clowns, Hoping they'll host it, They're swimming above it, but not in it yet. Fingers crossed.
Here are some pics.



Also, if you notice, His alot more spread out, So his pretty happy with everything.

Enjoy.

Good to know. He looks pretty happy. As I said before Anenomes like to shade their foot. Glad he`s doing fine.

It looks really good. I've been wary of carpet anemones as I've heard stories of them eating other fish/inverts.

Tank looks awesome too. Tonnes of coraline

Ok, So the bigger clown is hosting the carpet. The little one is just sitting back, Not going in it yet.

Hopefully, When they fully pair off (As there juv) they'll both live/sleep in it.

Clowns have a special way of slowly getting (for lack of a better word) "stung"(covered with muscus) by the anemone. That way they slowly become immune and invisable to the host anemone. That is how they can move in and out of an anemone without causing a feeding response from it and getting eaten.
