You wouldn't really want a coral for clowns, they could rub against it so much that it would kill it. You usually see clowns hosted by anemones, the usual favorite is bubble tips. I wouldn't recommend one unless you are running a 6 bulb t5ho and tank has been running for 6 months. They don't do well with parameters that fluctuate.

I would like to point out that it is safe to house clownfish with corals. In a tank without an anemone, they will look for other inverts to fill the empty void. As long as the coral is healthy and shows no signs of stress, your golden.

Clowns will host anything, from a rock to an anemone. lol

Mine hosted my elegance coral. It was great at first but eventually they almost killed it. i had to give away a $60 coral to save it. They tend to like flowy corals like LPS. Torches, hammers, leathers, elegances, mushrooms that are fluffy. You name it they might host it.

I have a marron and a black and white together. I have a toadstool leather coral and a bubble tip and the BW one would rather host the top left side in the rear of the tank. They do what they want sometimes

I have two clowns and one is hosting my bubble tip. Now the other guy is alone. Should I get another clown to keep him company?
