    Green torch/host clown?

    Im thinking about adding a green torch to my tank. Will this host my pink skunk clown? Can you guys suggest anything else that might host this fish?

    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?

    without an anemonie, clowns will be unpredictable as to what they will host in, but a good bet is usaully something soft and fluffy, like a torch.

    I have a clown fish in my 20g at work that has hosted itself near the heater and power heads.
    Of course, it might have something to do with the auto-feeder mounted directly above, but nonethesless, he never leaves the spot.
    (He know where the food comes from...)

    I had a Clarkii that hosted in the following in succession - a powerhead, the corner of my tank and a bubble coral. He used to use the bubbles as pillows. That was, until it ate him.

    Mine really liked frogspawn, and now has taken preference to a nice large fluffy purple mushroom.

    My clowns host in a pair of frogspawns. They can't seem to make up their minds which one they like best.

    They also act confused when the lights go off for the night the frogspawns close up. I'm guessing an anemonie doesn't close as much?

    Cheers!
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.

    mine host to my frogspawns and hairy mushrooms. they too seem to get annoyed at lights out when they close up. they try to keep cuddling into them to get them to open up.

    My 2 clown fish (false percs) at home haven't hosted to anything. I have a large piece of frogspawn but they don't go near it. They just swim around.....
