Hi All

Just introduced this Torch in my display yesterday and it opened up nicely. Today when I woke up saw my clown fish trying to make the Torch it's host. The Torch have pulled back it's tentacles little bit because of the clown's relentless movement on top of its head. I have one BTA but the clown is not interested. Is this ok for both the fish and Coral. Or should I do something? Any advice will be highly appreciated.

Regards
Sid

This is typical- euphyllia and anemones are their first targets.
It’s the coral that are the hosts. The first are guests persay

Will the Torch die due to the continuous snuggling of the clown?
Clowns can be aggressive. Keep an eye on them
