Hello!

I've got yet another question for my macro tank... guess it's better to ask than to find out the bad answer later, right?

Would there be any problem keeping a Condy nem in with a pair of clowns in a 20 long? I'm not trying to get them to host, I'm just trying to see if my Valentini puffer would nip at the anemone. So far, he's proven to be a very reef-safe specimen - ignoring large snails, hermit crabs, and soft corals. I'd just rather not throw in a nice bubble tip only to have it damaged by the puffer. Not that a Condy is worth any less, as it's still an animal, but they're easier to get a hold of and a bit cheaper, in case something does go wrong. I'd remove it at the first signs of trouble, of course.

If my puffer did end up being nem-safe, would there be a problem keeping the Condy in there? Or would I have to remove it before I could have a BTA or add any macros/softies to the rockwork?

Thanks.

I would recommend against it, I once saw a picture of a condo that ate a clownfish; this may have just been a freak accident, but still I would do some research or just try something else
As for anemone compatibility you might be interested in this chart:
