so i noticed today that when i woke up my larger clown was "trying out" my anemone but he hasnt gone in it for about an hour now... when your clowns host do they stay in the anemone or do they leave it alone for a while?

Either or. Mine has tentatively dove into mine for short periods of time. I think they have to get used to it. But once they found out how nice the nem is, they'll stay longer and longer until it's their exclusive home.:biggrin:

It all depends, I have 2 percs that will not leave the carpet they are in they are in altho the caprpet is over a foot across. I have 2 occ and 1 perc in the other tank and they all switch from hosting clams, mushrooms and my rbta.

My skunks went in and out for short few min. at first(took them 2-3 months to even notice the nem). It takes them sometime(other two months in my case) to mature and decide who is M/F and now staying in one permanently.
