Interesting issue with my favorite zoo

Lately one of my O Clowns appears to be trying to host my favorite zoo. He rubs against it but not like he is itching, like he is hosting. This is the first issue I have had that I find a little funny.

The zoos briefly close up and I figure this will stress them eventually.

Has anybody ever experienced this? I was thinking of moving the zoos.

Yes, clowns will host leather corals, zoo colonies, just about anything they can get their little fins into..except!!!! for the anemone you spend a fortune on just for their benefit.

If the clown starts to feed them, that would be very cool.
As long as the zoaanthids can be open 2/3rds of the day, they should not mind too much.
Fish do not read books, nor care what we think.

As Mrs Hara said they will host many corals. I have a tomato clown that host a pagoda Cup and a gold stripe maroon that host a bubble coral. They totally ignore the BTA that I got them. Your Zoo`s should be OK.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

That is so funny that they ignore the BTA. This one clown has been playing around with just about averything lately but within the last couple of days he likes that zoo.

Thanks for the replies.
