    Clowns without a home?

    I am interested in getting a few clown fish to add to my tank but I am not ready to add an anemone yet. I also don't want to do that until the switch off to a bigger tank is completed. Will the clowns be OK without a home, even if not completely happy? In the past I have always added clowns and an anemone at the same time and it had worked out well.

    i was told by many that the anemone thing is not true. They dont really need one at all ... other then provide shelther... but rocks do the same. I got 2 and are just happy without it.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    clowns are just fine without the anenome,unfortunatly sometimes they try to host in corals[lps] that just don't like it to much.

    That's what I was hoping to hear Johnny and coming from you I will consider it a correct answer. clowns are one of my fav fish to keep. I don't have any corals as yet ether as I see no need to fill my tank with corals when a tank upgrade is pending in the next few months. I can hardly wait as even if only at 180 gallons it will be the largest tank I have set up :-)
    Thanks

    Ivan ... if you see this ... do you get the tank raised clowns? If so do you have any in stock? If not can you get 2 for me on your next order?
