Clown hosting aptasia

My Oscellaris clowns are hosting an aptasia. One of them was witnessed feeding the aptasia today. The aptasia is too small for them to swim in it but I'd been wondering if that would happen. Now I have my answer. I guess they won't appreciate it when I get a peppermint shrimp.

keep a watch on your shrimp. the clown will most likely pick them apart if they go after the anemone. they fend off all kinds of predators in the wild

Amazing. My clowns not only don't feed their anemone (Long Tentacle Anemone
-Macrodactyla doreensis), they take food away from it
