Clown hosted anemone FINALLY!!!

My clown has finally hosted the anemone
My clowns would always dig a hole in the front corner of the tank when the lights went off at night
So i decided to place the anemone in that corner and wala....It hosted it
Will they continue to host even when the lights are on?

Maybe they are still hosting the hole lol. But from my experience once they host the anemone they will barely ever leave it.

Congrats! Isn't it cool to watch?

The anemone is actually the host. You know, when you have a Party at your house, your the host. Same with the Nem, he's hosting the clown. You always here " the clowns hosting", but it's actually the other way around.

Maybe move the anemone away from the glass now? If the clown is going to live there he looks a little squished...lol Just a suggestion...

If the anemone is happy, and the clown is happy, why mess with success? If the anemone wants to move, it will! LOL
