I bought a juvenile tomato clown about 2 months ago. It took him about 2 weeks to figure out what an anenome was. Now, he's hard to get out of it. That's not a big deal until I have to feed the anenome. My buddy doesn't have to feed his anenome. His clown (a Cinnamon) takes food to the anenome. Not mine, he cleans food OUT of his anenome!
I thought clowns were supposed feed their host. Mine is a freeloader, enjoying the tentacles but not taking care of his home. Is this a learned behavior? Could I add a larger female tomato and have her teach him... without the two fighting? Or am I just stuck with a young punk until he figures it out on his own. Will he ever figure it out?
