Seems it is very possible.

I don't like artificial anything, but this is a nice option if your tank isn't setup to support an anemone.

That would be interesting to find out if they would host a fake nem but the fake ones I find are not very soft.

They make them out of a soft rubber so they wave around. I bet they would host one of these in a second.

I don't either, but the clown probably doesn't care. Might be a good substitute if you really want a Nemo tank for your kid but don't want to invest the time and dollars needed to keep a real anemone alive and well. Clown fish are far easier to keep live than anemones.

Yeah thats true. When everyone starts their 1st SW they always want an anemone but once you find out how hard it is to keep your dreams are crushed.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I gave up almost 10 years ago. I found they didn't like being surrounded by coral in my tank. I know folks mix them all the time. But in the wild, they usually sit pretty much with each other. I decided to concentrate on corals after one toxed my tank.

So they basiclly arent happy until they have a FOWLR? And then you have to spend a crap load on lighting for it when that is the only coral you have! (not sure if they are corals)
