crazy clown!

i lost a false perc due to a powerhead accident and replaced him with a pair of true percs. I have been waiting for weeks for them to find my rose BTA and it has not happened. My tank raised false perc found it in a a matter of days and these two wild caught true percs need to stop and ask for directions or get a map. They still want nothing to do with my BTA but my larger perc has taken a fancy to my hairy muchroom colony. So far so good but do you think it will end up irritating my mushroom colony?

BTAs are not associated with either A. percula or A. ocellaris in the wild, so if either goes into it, your lucky I would think that a hairy shroom would be much more similar to the natural host of A. percula.

Are you talking about a carpet anemone? They do closely resemble those.

Yes, the giant carpet anemone is one of the natural hosts for A. percula.
