You alos have to watch out for sharp pieces on the corals so that your clowns dont get nicked if they do host.

To be honest, it was cool to see the whole hosting thing, BUT it does get old pretty quick. My clowns pretty much never left the elegance so it really cut down on their "display" time.
It depends on what type of clownfish. I had a really agressive breed that ripped the buds right of my xenia. But I had another clownfish(different breed) that didn't do anything to my xenias.

I have a perfect spot for it. But do they just grow on their own or do I put it on a rock and let it cover it? Its just a tiny little one

Also what's a good lighting schedule? I've seen some people have at first just two bulbs turn on for a while then all 4 then end with just 2 again before all turn off.

Sorry I never got a picture yesterday but here it is

It seems to have lost a lot of color :/ the whole middle was bright orange when I got it. Is something wrong or do you think it will get its color back
