Symbiotic relationship Anemone/Damsel

OK, I put a nice false percula clown in my tank about a month ago. He was doing well, but seemed a bit stressed. He just swam up and down one corner of the tank.

I figure he misses his anemone, so I go to the LFS and find a nice rose bulb anemone. Put him in the tank on a nice piece of base rock, near the top under the light. He's in great health, and opens fully under the light!

First day he opens, my domino damsel moves in and chases anyone off that gets close. Funny thing was, the silly clownfish had NO interest in the anemone at all 8O

Clown finally settled down and everyone is happy. Especially the damsel and the anemone...

But it's a dry heat...

Sounds about right on all accounts. Remember clowns are in the damsel faimly so its not supprising that a domino would take to the anenome also.

The swimming up and down deal is kind of normal for new fish some times.
