clownfish hosting trick worth trying.

i had heard if you have a clown who wont host an anemone to stick a picture of a clown hosting one and it might host. so i had a saddleback who had been hosting this anemone in the pet store and i bought him. then after my old anemone died due to insufficient lighting i bought the anemone as well. (after i bought a new light system of coarse. but when i got him he would swim around it but not touch it. so after a few days i remembered the picture trick but i dont have a printer so what i did instead was, i youtubed a video of a saddleback clownfish hosting an anemone on my brothers psvita. then i played it a couple times through while holding the vita up to the glass in front of the clown. after a few times through i left for a half hour and when i came back the saddleback was hosting the anemone.

I love when an idea like that actually works. If only we knew about using a picture years ago. It would've saved a lot of people some major disappointment! Great post. Sometimes the simple solutions are the best.

Awe man I was hoping it would work out for you. Maybe your clowns are living in the Internet age along with the rest of us and don't care for books and photos. Just kidding. If it really would work out I'd have to call up a bunch of my buddies and tell em all about it! Maybe your fish feel safe and sound without a host. That's quite a peaceful tank you set up for em. They're gonna be happy either way.
