Finally hosting!!!:)

Lol so after two months of waiting my two false percs finally started hosting my green BTA!!! So I'm going to say this and it might make me retarded.... After six weeks I started researching why they wouldn't host and alot of forums said if they are tank bred they might not know to host...so I decided to show them YouTube videos of clowns hosting and BAM hahaha might he coincidence but any thoughts?

I have heard of people taping a pic up to the tank and their clowns started hosting.

Ocellaris does not host Entacmaea quadricolor in the wild.

Has nothing to do with wild caught or tank bred.

Do you think the videos had anything to do with it or just coincidence?

They don't host magna floats in the wild either but I know several people that have that happen too.

Right, its a surrogate. Just like a BTA. They will host anything if the right anemone is not present.

Do you know anyone who has a Magnifica or Gigantea and the clowns still hosts a magfloat?
