clownfish and anemone

  1. fatanat Initiate Member

    hello everyone..i have somethin to ask.i have set up marine aquarium (2 months, 3 feet X 2 feet).

    i hav 2 tails of black nemo and orange nemo..2 tails of fossil fish together with 11 types of coral, boxing shrimp, star fish and dragon net..2 types of anemone.

    the tank is set up with chiller, wave maker, skimmer, lamp, filter and biodigest bacteria..

    i supply the tank with 9 types of supplement every 2 weeks (pH, kh, ca, mg, stn, iodine, coral vit. iron, manganese), feed on coral and anemone every week..

    the problem is, can i know y my clownfish doesnt want to enter the anemone?

    thank you everyone..

    I think certain clowns will only host certain types of anemones.Do you know what type of anemones you have?

    Conclusion from Chart:

    Clarkii's don't care what anemone they have :p

    I'm assuming its the purple ting on the bottom right? I've never seen an anenome so dark before so I'm not sure.

    :) yes it is...

    does it because it is so dark that they refuse to enter?

    I had a long tenticle once that was very pink so I'm wondering if its just your lights that are making it appear purple?

    no..it is true purple..the colour is still dark purple eventhough when i switch off the light
