Clownish and Galexea Hosting?

I'm sure I'm not the first to witness this. Just thought I'd share.

Looks like my clown has decided to host my Galexea coral. He even chased my flame angel away which has never happened!

Any potential short comings of this relationship?

My Galaxea is extremely sharp and brittle, I'd be worried the clown would cut themselves..

I would worry about the coral. For some reason my Galexea is so sensitive to things. One little change in the reef and it starts dying off then it starts growing back and multiplying then dying off...

Good to know. Any thing I can realistically do? I really don't want to remove either if I don't have to.

Works for me. When my tank is ready for a BTA my clown will just be spoiled
