How do you "invite" a clown to his Anemone?

My "tank raised" (I think that was my problem) won't even go near the white Sebea. Can I do anything besides wait, hope, and pray he finds his way in there? If not Thats cool, I'll try a "natural" clown later down the road and see what happens.

As far as I know, and I'm not an anemone expert, you have to wait for the clown to make up his mind. I don't know of any way to entice the clown into the anemone.

A clown will take to the anenome on his own. Really nothing you can do but hope he hosts it. try this website it will give you an idea on what clowns like what anenomes http://lib1.store.vip.sc5.yahoo.com/...mbioticMap.htm

first of all what kind of clown is it?
ive heard of people putting those little clownfish algea clips next to their anenome and their clown hosting it but....seems a little.... i guess u could say maybe that person had luck..
And third of all im sure youve hard this ,annny times but its up to the clown and nature it could be 2 months to two years, its up to the clown

Good luck with your clown hosting..i remember when my tomatos wouldnt host my sebae i wanted to just grab them and shove them in the but then i thought better of it

good luck!

I have 2 percs...and both are tank raised....neither has even took a second look at my bubble tip for the month that they have been in the tank. Oh well, I still love 'em. They are like little puppies, happy to see someone every single time..(as long as you are going to feed them)...LOL

From everything that I have read about these critters, tank raised clowns pretty much don't have a clue to what an anenome even is. Chances are not good they will go to the anenome. But there is always the chance that your will have it's instincts "pop" in and make a liar out of all those articles. Good luck.

Mike

A carpet or Ritteri anenome might work better. That is what Drsfostersmith said.

Stinkin Clownfish anyway...

....I had no luck with four seperate Percs. Unfortunately...not having luck meant they didn't much care for any relationship at all with an anenome OR life...they just didn't seem to like living in my tanks.

I've had one maroon Clown now for three weeks in one tank, purchased with a BT and another maroon Clown in another tank for a week now also a package deal with another BT.

The lfs said they're a little hardier. The one down side is that they don't take well with other clowns. The seem to waddle a little more which is cute...but they both just absolutely loooooooove their anenomes. The first one....hmmm...just now came to me that we haven't named any of our critters.....anyway...the first one beats his BT to a pulp and every few days, either to....um....poop...or just to get some personal time, the BT is all balled up. The stinkin clown STILL rubs up against it hoping to get SOMEthing out of it. Desperate little thing.

I'm hooked though. That dark red contrasts really well with the white stripes, and the second one has a yellow stripe inside the white...that one just looks awesome. I took a bunch of pics today but haven't gotten them resized to fit into my gallery.

Can you believe these tanks have led me to buying a 5MP digital camera?...well...I guess you probably can.....

Thanks guys.. We'll see what happens. I'll wait a few weeks and see, then if he doesn't go to his home, it's just another excuse to buy another Clown
