Ocellaris and Frogspawn

What is the chance that an ocellaris will host a frogspawn? I asked the guy at the LFS and he said very little. When i put the clown in i herded him towards the frogspawn and he has been swimming under the polyps for about 5 hours now.

ty kindly

Tough to state a percentage, but I think the chances would be pretty good. The only concern is that the clown could irritate or injure the frogspawn by pushing the tentacles against the sharp skeleton. Just keep an eye on things.

one of my two clowns looks like he is serisously considering this. He gets right up to the tentacles especially at night time but has never actually ventured into it. I was worried that if he decided to do so the frogspawn would get aggitated and retract into the skeleton?

Well... its then next day and the little fella seems to have taken quite the liking to my frogspawn =) Hopefully this wont cause a problem. He doesnt really swim in the polyps much just stays close, but the frogspawn doesnt seem as expanded as it ussually is =/

I guess we will see what happens. If this starts causing problems what could i do?

thanks for the help

We had our yellow striped maroon clown host in a frogspawn as well as a bubble coral for a while. Aside from the coral not opening as much as usually the fish was hurting itself. Its face and belly were all scratched from scraping on the skeleton of the coral.

I would try to discourage your clownfish from doing this. Whether you sit him down and have a little talk or just move the coral a few days in a row (he'll get confused) is up to you. I would do something though so the fish doesn't scrape himself and have it get infected or worse.

Good luck.
