clown fish doesnt like my anenome?
Hi Ive had a regular ocellaris clown fish for about 3 weeks in my tank. I received him from my sister, who had decided she didn't want him after he became slightly aggressive when his partner died in a power head accident. My family pressured me into getting an anemone for my clown fish, as he would sometimes spas out when the light was turned on, or when somebody made a quick motion. I had also wanted one, because I thought they were neat, and I thought the clown fish might be less aggressive if I got him one.
It has been about 5 days now, and my clown fish has still not touched my anemone. It is a bubble tipped anemone, and has the healthy bubble tips. I got a very good deal on a powerful light, so light is not a problem, my tank qualities are good, and I feed my tank flake food in the morning, and brine shrimp in the evening. I also squirt the brine shrimp directly into my anemone with a turkey baster.
I don't know much about anemones and clown fish to know if it normally takes some time to develop a bond between them, of if this is unusual. any thoughts or input would be helpful.
