Clown + Duncan

We have 2 regular ocellaris clowns and 2 small black and white. I have a carpet anemone, had a bubble tip, and a toadstool mushroom coral that the clowns could have adopted but no.

Recently, one of the black and white clowns took to the Duncan and has been making it home.

I'm curious if it will be detrimental to the Duncan, but it's really cute behavior. Would be nice for the clowns to finally do what they were designed to do.

Anybody see a problem with a Duncan hosting a clown?

All depends on how "loving" the clown is to the Duncan. If the Duncan ends up staying closed because of the constant annoyance from the clown, then yes... it could be detrimental to the coral. Time will tell.

I agree with Kurt. It really depends on how rough the clown treats the duncan. I have two clowns that host a hammer coral and a bubble coral and so far they treat it right.
