Can't force them. Find a picture of a Clown hosting, cut it out, and tape it nearest where the Anemone is, they'll get the hint. Oh, and i'm not kidding either.

hmm Maybe I could try that with my one month old when it's time for potty training. Just tape a picture of another kid on a toilette to the wall of the bathroom.

Why do u have 5 clownfish in 1 tank, and same with the anemone? how big is this tank. Could be potentionaly disasterous, clownfish are very agressive/teritorial fish. It should only take a week or so, let them do it on their own, after they are settled in, they will start exploring, find the anemone and slide into it.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
