That's why you do a second tank that way you can have the pleasure of corals while you wait and a nem tank is a great excuse for a second setup.... I better start showing the gf some rbta pics

Correct. Think it makes a difference if they were wild caught or not? My wild caught (i think) clown is the one hosting!

From what I read, not experience wild caughts are much more likely to host a clown.

This is my experience, too. Although I never had a clown that didn't host a mushroom leather for whatever reason. Even tank raised ones eventually joined the party.

Hey thanks for the thoughts matt and coralline. I had a hunch that the wild caught ones would have a better defined "instinct".

I hope Connie joing the party soon! Its a rager! Lol

They are very rare but some wild caughts exist that are rare morphs.. that's how some are actually produced
