hello everyone! I hope you are having a nice day. I have a pair of snowflake clownfish in a 20 gallon with a 3 -4 inch bubbletip anemone. and I notice at night when I turn the lights off the clownfish pair go in to the bubbletip anemone and that is where they sleep but during the day when I have the lights on the generally stay away from the anemone or just hover over it my question is. Is there a way to for me to help the clownfish pair to at least go I the anemone during the day and not just a night? I will try to post some videos. Thanks in advance!

Are they going to another coral during the day? Maybe a euphyllia or goni? Sometimes my clowns will leave their nem and go to my hammer coral. When you feed the tank do they return to the nem and eat in/near it?

I also have another problem whenever I try to feed the bubbletip anemone any food like mysis shrimp the clownfish always steel it! So my nem barely gets any food! Is there anything I can do about that? And the strange thing is that they steel it from the anemone but don't even eat it they just spit it out! Anything I can do?

Your anemone doesn't really need any food it gets what in needs through photosynthesis I would not be concerned about this

Would you consider your tank to be balanced or lopsided when it comes to coral?
