that'd be my guess... he's saying (assuming you don't have one), "I want an anemone!!!" Smile

in a 7.5g with pc lighting NO WAY. hes tank raised so he shouldn't be all me wanty anemone. I gues he likes how it feels. it seems to not be doing the button polyps any harm they close up a bit then open up very quickly after he goes away. I am going to look into non agro lps corals that would make a sutiable fake host for the clowns other than some small brown button polyps. anybody recomend any good non agro lps? that I could place on the substrate?

I've just spoken w/ your clownfish (he says his name is bob), and he feels that a nano tank deserves a nano anenome... I told him you'd get right on it... I didn't have the heart to tell him they don't exist... Very Happy
