Anemone Question
 
I have a haitian anemone with an ocellaris clownfish. how long will it take before the clownfish resides within its tentacles? Thanks in advance!!

fish usually do not host a condy, as far as ALL anemones go its a hit or miss with them hosting them as well.
clowns will host anything and everything they feel safe/comfort in, which includes rock, glass, corals, anything in the tank.

I have seen tamato and clarkii clowns host condy anemones but its fairly rare. Even if you get a different anemone, the clown may not host with it. Captive bread clowns are hit or miss when it comes to taking a host.

If it does ever decide to host in this anemone (and i agree with the above info) then it can take anywhere from 1-9months.
