strange symbiotic relationship...?
Well, I have a pretty interesting thing going on in my tank. I got a clarkii clown about a month and a half ago and always wanted a pair, so I got another about a month ago. The first clown I got is hosting a condy anenome that is plenty big enough for two clowns, but he insisted on not sharing it with the new guy. Unfortunatly, the first clown began picking on the new one and started chasing him under a low rock whwere my blood shrimp hangs out. This blood shrimp never usually comes out for anything and doesn't like fishy intruders under his rock much, especially new ones. But he didn't chase this guy out. Strangely, despite getting picked on by the first clown, the new one is doing very well and is eating and is very energetic. The strange thing about this situation is that once the new clown has his share of food, he takes food down to the shrimp and spits it out right in front of him, just as a clown would do to his anenome.
Has anyone ever heard of anything like this before?
