New to it

So I've had FOWLR tank for almost four months. last Friday at my LFS they told me my water has been consistently perfect and recommended me to get an anemone even though I'm new they thought I was ready for it so I got a condelactis so my question is care and how to get my mocha clowns to host thanksClick image for larger version

Cool, you got the right lighting for it? It's unlikely that your clown will host this type of nem, I assume you don't have any corals being a fowler? They can sting corals if they move around the tank. Nice looking nem though

You need strong lighting, and pristine water for the condy. And I wouldn't consider a 4 month old tank nem ready, you should really wait around a year. As bectan said this will most likely not host anything. You should also stop listening to that lfs, no reputable lfs would push a nem on some one with no reef experience and a 4 month old tank, IMO they were just looking for a sale and would of told you what ever it took to get one. My $.02 would be to return it, and start with something easier like soft corals or maybe a euphillia family coral

Ok well they are not completely at fault here I asked about an anemone and that's what the offered I wanted a sense and they said "no way to new of tank and really high lighting" so they offered me the condelactis and I was sold instantly it seems to be doing just fine I feed it mysis shrimp and some pellet stuff and it seems to like that is there any basics like mushrooms I could do next

What kind of lighting do you have? With proper lighting, it stands a chance. Without it, it will deteriorate. Hopefully they asked about that, as that is as important, actually more, than the water conditions.

Those are no where near strong enough to provide the light required for that nem
