Clowns hosting

Hi, I think my clowns have taken a liking to my hammer coral, and are starting to host it. Is this going to cause a problem for either the coral or fish? Thanks for your help, Joel

Just keep an eye on the clowns and the coral. My clowns hosted my elegance coral and it almost died from all that rubbing. lol And the coral can have sharp edges too so make sure the clowns don't get nicked. But it should be fine.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks Carey. If I had a bigger tank, would get a nem for them. Will keep an eye on the hammer.

Lol clowns will host pretty much anything that you don't want them to and will be stubborn about hosting something you do want them too. My 2 have just started hosting my nem after just under a year of having it, before this they were trying to host my electric flame scallop for the last 8 months .
