Maroon clown*

Clown fish host anemone, I have heard that clowns like to "host" things like rocks and corners also. Could this be what my maroon clown has done?

He has gone down to the bottom of his little corner where he chills a lot during the day and where he sleeps. Is that normal?

I have a pair of clowns with no anemone. They too love 1 corner of the tank. They explore all day but return to the corner in the evening and throughout the day.

My b/w clown also sleeps in the back corner. She sleeps about 4" away from a beautiful, big GBTA, but still sleeps in the corner and doesn't touch the nem. Lol. Goofball.

my maroon clown (Moony) has an area that's all his own, no anemone. He sometimes comes to the very top left corner. I've learned that means he's ready to eat. things are a bit interesting now tho because I've added a few roommates and they seem to like his area lol

I wonder if I rearrange the tank like I've been wanting to do for a while, (one big LR pile in center with plenty of caves and a lot more room on the sandbed ) if anything will change?
