Clowns found some hosts

I feel super bad because the Feather Dusters are stressed out (obviously) but my Clowns are hosting two of them. I guess I need to speed up my search for a bubble tip

That is pretty cool to see. I can't even take a picture of mine hosting. They always run and hide when the camera comes out.

Mine kind of chill out and do the whole filter feeding thing. Here soon we're going to replace the clown we lost and put in a couple pots for them to host.

I dont currently have any SW tanks, just fresh water.. but maybe some day I will. This may be a dumb question, but what does it mean when clowns "host" ?

Hosting is when (usually) an anemone allows the fish to live on it like a home. As stated in the thread though, clown fish are not super picky and will host almost anything!
