Watch him to see if he starts to withdraw.

He was withdrawn when I first put him in but he's responded well!

A fake one would work and then you wouldn't have to worry about lighting needs. eBay has them. My clown found a host Frogspawn but it wasn't immediate.

Thanks for that trackfast but I'm planning on upgrading my lights and would much prefer real!

If you wanted something real, I would go with a coral or anemone with tentacles. I would think the swaying motion is attractive to them. This is just my guess.

This one does sway a little and has small tenticals! But that sounds like good advise thanks! Do you think he needs moving a little further down?

I don't know about the corals, but I thought I should comment and say that you have a gorgeous tank set up. Is that a valentini puffer? Your clownfish look awesome.

I personally dont think it will host the toadstool. As far as frogspawn I dont think you want that either as the clown will probably damage one of the heads thus causing the brown jelly disease. I`ve had mine host hammer coral, bubble coral, mushrooms.
