Not sure what the pic is other then the clowns and nem.

Its not up to fish. But I've heard of people using pictures or even playing videos. You'd have to ask more experienced members. Mine take how to my torch.

Let them out of the strainer. Put the anemone on a rock somewhere so it gets the lighting it needs to survive. The clownfish will stay around the anemone if they are interested in it. Just let nature do its magic. It takes the clownfish a little while to develop the mucus over its body that will prevent it from getting stung by the anemone. They will brush up against it lightly and eventually will take the "plunge." Give it time and they will take to it. If for some odd reason they don't go into it then try a different type of anemone other than a bubble tip. Usually they prefer bubble tips but some clownfish can be picky.

Hope this helps!

My clowns favorite anemone is my ritteri. I love that anemone and they won't leave it hardly. They do go to my sebae and bubble tips every now and then though.

Yes clarkii is compatible with Condi. Usually certain kind of clown has to pick their favorite anemone to host.
