My new clarki clown likes my condy anemone!

I couldn't believe it, the guy at the lfs said "clownfish don't like the condy anemones" I have a false perc. clown which isn't interested in anything, and I just added a clarki, the two clowns get along great! After 1 day the clarki loves the condy anemone! I like watching him swim in and out of it and rub all the tentacles! Just though I would share!

surprising, that's a big nono to add clowns at different times, unless what i've read multiple times is false. from my lfs it's also a no no to mix species.

personally i've never tried it, i removed my clarkii before adding my two oscellaris, but props, it's almost always what new sw aquarists want to have

its been one day the relationship between the clowns are not likely to last. given some time the clarki is most likely to kill the false. once the clarki gets use to the tank he will set up his territory and defend it. when that happens the other clown will be SOL

This is true. Seperate them now if you can...or else you'll have one less clown one morning...

Good for you. I have a false and a true that get along great. As for the condi, I thought clowns wouldn't host them. But my clowns host the sand! They host anything.
