Yellow Tang thinks he's a Clown....lol

I have a Yel. Tang that believes he is a clown. He always "schools" with my 2 Sebae Clowns and even hangs out in their anemone!!!!! It doesn't seem to sting him. Anyone ever seen that before? I'll try and get a pic.

LOL, very cool.
My Yellow thinks he's a Heni Butterfly, he schools with them frequently.
