The clowns are hosting!

My 2 ocellaris have decided, after THREE YEARS of having both clowns and BTA's, to host in a couple of my 15+ green BTA's.

For 3 years they ignored them.

A few weeks ago, they started hanging around near the BTA's, then I saw them occasionally swimming through them.

Tonight, just after lights out, the male is curled up in one of the medium ones, like a baby (after a few minutes of squirming!)

The anemone doesn't seem to mind, it closed up a bit, but not much.

The female is just resting right on the edge of one right now, but she's always against or near one of them.

It's so magical, for this to happen after so long.
