hosting an anenome

Hello all. I recently purchased an anenome for my 4 clarkii clown fish but they seem to ignore it. How should I get them to host it?

What type of anemone is it? Looks like a condy from the picture. Clowns may or may not host an anemone.

You have condylactus, buy a sebae and the clarki's should definitely host it.

How big is your tank and long has it been running? It's looks pretty new. What kind of lighting do you have?
Anemones needs a mature, stable system and high powered lighting.

I would be more concerned with the 4 clowns in the same tank than if they will host it or not. Not all clowns will host a nem, some will host corals or even powerheads. lol

Also, like metioned above, the tank does seem new. Nems require an established tank, preferably over 9 months old, pristine water and super lighting......

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

There is no guarantee they will host any anenome. Those kind are very hard to get to host a clownfish. I agree with the tank being too new for an anenome.
