I've heard of different fish living in anemones but I don't think this is one of those cases

He is constantly trying to get into it. His tail and stomach even taps the tips. He Is only new to the tank. I'll keep my eye on him. More worried that he will get stung and eaten.

I am surprised the clowns let it! Mine would be pushing him outta there... I think that it would sting him but have no idea how you would get him to stop.

It's very cute! The two clowns that host it actually allow her in however they won't let another pair of clowns near it. She is there all day apart from the few times a day she disappears to rest. I have lots of footage of her doing it.

thats because the clowns are prob laughing hysterically at the tang. that would be like watching someone getting shocked repeatedly, only for them to go back for more.
