It's not unheard of, but I wouldn't believe them till I saw it with my own eyes.

My clown doesn't really sleep in his fake anemone, but he hovers around it and when I feed little bits of shrimp to my fish, he will carry pieces of shrimp and stick it into the fake anemone. It is cute to watch. The fake anemone is by Sea Garden I believe. They are only 9 bucks and can't be killed. Maybe that is worth a try. Here is the link

I don't have a Mandarin, but a Scooter Dragonette. I have her eating my Angels frozen food and recently she started eating flake. I have to target feed her though. She's a slow eater and the other fish get it long before it hits the bottom.

Thanks for the advice LindSkins, one question, will the clowns go in the anemone and use it as their homes, or will they not recognise it cuz the real anemones have the stinging tentacles? If they will go in it its a good deal

I doubt you will get much intrest in the fake anemone from your clowns if they were tank raised. its definatly worth a serious try if its under 10 bucks. if they do take to it, It would be a good Idea to conside getting an anemonme.
