Have you heard of this?

I bought a small black damsel 3 weeks ago who now is mimicking my 2 clowns, and spends part of his time nestled in a large green bubble coral cluster...has anyone ever had this happen with this kind of fish?

yup damsels are known to nestle in corals and anemones too.... damselfish and anemonefish are more closely related than most people know.

Want a great read check out my debut novel Neptune's Garden: www.neptunesgardenbook.com

They're in the same family.

When I used to keep damsels with my clown they would always mimic my clown and follow it around. My clown got so ticked one day it attacked one lol.
I'm tired of getting pointless messages. If your going to start a conversation or ask me something, keep up with it.

clowns are apart of the damselfish family. They exhibit alot of the same traits.
