I want to get a torch and was hoping my clown pair would host it, has anyone had their clowns host a torch coral?
Looking for a torch established on a LR, I have in the past tried RTB anemonie but they move around too much so I'm hoping to use the torch instead. :smile:

It is very likely a hosting pair of clowns would damage or kill the torch. The constant irritation of 2 fish slapping their tails into the torch heads can be quite irritating and even destructive to the soft torch head rubbing against its hard skeleton I would imagine.

Have you thought about trying other species of anemones? My Onyx clowns never leave my sebae anemone. Once the sebae is locked in, it doesn't move at all.

The RBTAs walk a lot, I do agree...

My clowns host an elegance at the moment even tho I have like 10 rbta in my tank and torch they still like the elegance and host my scan beside it ..and it's better "prepared" to be hosted than a torch maybe try a elegance ? Either way you don't get to really choose what they host kinda more up to them and luck

My clown loves snuggling into his red mushrooms. Doesn't bother with the elegance at all.

Hi Laurie

I have 3 clown pairs and they love hosting in both my Green Hammer and my Pink Hammers. They also host in my Green Fuzzy Mushrooms. They do not seem to like my Frog Spawn though.

I do have some Pink Hammer and Green Fuzzy Mushrooms available if you are interested.

Finding a Sebae anemone is hard sometimes, a lot of people have the RBTA's FS, if anyone has a Sebae they want to part with I'd be interested. :smile:

my clowns never went near the BTA even when the tank was full of them but they sure liked the xenia when I had that

I have one pair that host a frogspawn with no ill effects. Another tank with a pair that host a leather.. Again no ill effects. Third tank that pair hosts an octospawn.

Sebaes don't split, those pesky buggers LOL. Mine is approaching pizza size when fully expanded.

Good luck with whatever choice you go with.

There are lots of sizes of pizza, could you be more specific? :lol:
