Totally off topic but I was at a local ping a few years ago and there was a 9 month old dog that has one foot that never fully developed and his name was nemo! I will never forget him!

Anyway back to fish! What kind of clown are good to have an anemone for? I really want them to play in the anemone!
There is really no guaranty unless you buy an anemone and clown together that are already hosting. But certain anemones are more likely to host certain clowns than others. Like a carpet might be more likely to host a ocellaris than a tomato. And a bta might be more likely to host a tomato than a ocellaris. But there are no guarantees and there a good chance your clown will host a powerhead or some other equipment. Lol

That's pretty funny you asked what a misbar was. Cause u just bought one. Lol. It's when they only have a half or partial middle stripe, or any stripe I guess but I've only seen middle misbars. Oh and I agree clowns are ugly old men

From what I've seen and owned, young Occelaris clowns dont have their stripes fully developed

Ok, i dont want an anenome, but lots of coral. Are there any corals that an occerellis could host?

Also, could this kill the coral?

Awe bummer! So best bet would be to buy the clown with an anemone if its already hosting it in the tank? Will definitely look for that then cuz that's a look I really want! Thanks!!

Lol i definitly wouldnt get an anenome. When they die they release toxins into your tank and kill everything. I will just get a flowing frogspawn or hammer coral and see it the clown hosts that, cuz i dont want my tank to be ruined if the anenome dies!
