Pink Tip Anemone

Hello everyone,
So today I purchased my very first anemone. I was wondering if anyone knew if ocellaris clownfish host pink tip anemones and if so is there a way to speed up the process?

Sometimes you just have to wait it out if you want you can put them both in a clear breader box and see if that works! I have seen many people do it that way

They like the bubble tip anemone and honestly when its comes to those type of clownfish it's up to each individual clown if they feel like hosting it or not, its a 50/50 so it will either host it or might not ever host it at all it's up to him , but hey good luck !!

Do you have a condy or bulb tip? I have a rbta. Its been in the tank for a little over a month and today is the first time I've seen my clown even look at it.

It's a Condy. I heard that clowns don't usually host then but it could happen so I'm crossing my fingers.

When I got my anemone the clownfish wouldn't host it for a while. What helps is taping a picture of a clownfish in an anemone outside the tank. I know it sounds crazy but it really helps. Leave it there for a little while. Should help

Condylactis are not generally clownfish hosts. They come from the Caribbean and clownfish originate from the IndoPacific.

That being said, as long as you didn't give them a map, they may give it a whirl. Anecdotal evidence seems to indicate that captive raised fish are less likely to adopt an anemone regardless. Some end up adopting corals and powerheads.
