Do 'nem's like it rough?
A couple days ago i got a LTA and clarkii clownfish. Both are pretty small, but the clown looks like he beats on the 'nem like a redheaded stepchild. Is this normal? Are nems masochists?

Ok that's cool but you really didn't answer any of my questions.

Yes, they like it rough. My clown beats my bta up everyday. To the point it's the size of a dollar coin. It's at least 7 years of this.

wow you have a 7 year old nem that shrinks that small?

I don't think the nems like it. From what I understand a clownfish hosting an unestablished nem that is too small can potentially kill it. Other issues can arise such as the nem splitting from being stressed out by the clown.
