anenome and clown

i just got a green bubble tip anenome, is it a bad thing that after a week my maroon clown still hasnt hosted it or is this normal. could the fact that he is tank raised be an issue with this.

A week isn't very long...and they don't always adopt an anemone...so give it time...as long as they're both healthy, that's half the battle...

just because you have a clownfish doesn't mean that he will host in an anemone. Especially a tank raised one. they have never seen an anemone and therefore doesn't know what its for. in the wild they are raised to know what it is. you take a 50/50 chance. but it could be a while before he does, if he does.

It normally takes 2 weeks maybe 3 but I see your clownfish did finally accept it.

i think it depends on each clown. we had 2 ocellaris that hosted in a atlantic amenone. Our maroons hosted in a bubble tip, but wont go near the sebae anemone we have.
