There is no guarantee they will even host anything or may host a ph, coral, sand, a corner of the tank....

Just like roka64 said they may never host anything or they could go straight for it. My ocellaris clowns host a bta and my tomato clowns host mushrooms and sometimes the star polyps since it's formed a round ball shape. At my lfs, they have a pair of onyx clowns that just host the corner of the tank when there is a rose bta in there. They could also not host the anemone and then months later all of the sudden be all over it.

Awesome article melosu58! Lot's of great info. Mine seems to be doing well. I aclimated very slowly, and it seems to be happy. Sits in one spot for a while, then moves to someplace else and hags out.

I just thought it was awfully dull colored, thought maybe there was something wrong with it. Thats the problem with the mail-order stuff. I saved a ton of cash over LFS, but dont get to choose.
