I think the Condy is a good Anemone to start with. Just check for lighting requirements as all Anemone's have different requirements, and you should be fine. I'm not sure about the Clown hosting with this particular species, but it's worth a shot. It is also possible that the Condy may eat the Clown as well. I would research this particular Condy to make sure it is really what you want. There are many out there that will allow a Clown to host with them.

I have a purple condy that is currently hosting 2 clowns ( a percula and a sebae) It took a little while for them to warm up to each other, but now they are inseparable. I would agree that it is a good first choice, but I also had one that I returned to the LFS because he actually ate several of my fish.

I have been personally stung by Florida condy's while snorkeling. There is nothing to worry about it is just like getting a bad rash.

I had a condy anenome in my tank with an occelaris clown.They never bonded but i didnt expect them too.Gave it to a friend.I think bubble tips host most clownfish and are easier to keep than others.

You will know it when you see it. The clowns rub and wiggle all over the anenome. They wallow with wild abandon and and then peek out at you from the arms of the anemone. Nothing else quite like it. They will "spit" food into the anemone.

The purple condy that hosts my clowns I bought with the sebae clown already bonded from a LFS. Since then, the percula has also taken up residence. No major tussles between the two clowns,

Since my Condy is in the tank with other fish, he gets fed in that fashion. Usually once a week I target feed him various foods such as pieces of Krill and shrimp though.
