So I got a pink tip condy anenome (along with a green bubble tip) about a week ago. I’m coming across information that’s saying you shouldn’t put a pair of clowns in the same tank as a condy? I was aware that the condy doesn’t host clowns, but I didn’t know that they weren’t suppose to be in the same aquarium?? I have a pair of clowns, a wrasse, and a yellow damsel. Does anyone else have experience with a condy and any consequences to having them?? I’m super intrigued by it and don’t want to get rid of it, but I’m also concerned for my other fish. I have a 6 line wrasse that’s been getting pretty close to it and I’d hate to see anything bad happen! I currently have a 40 gallon, but I’m in the process of getting a 150 gallon. I know it’s going to be awhile before I could move the condy so I’m contemplating maybe taking it back to my LFS. Any advice here??

Mine started off just like yours, white with pink tips. It will color up given better lighting to the point that the pink tips aren't as noticeable. My clowns like to hang out in the corner above it but never bother going near it. On the other hand, I have Chromis that like to swim through the tentacles. I have never lost any fish to it even though it has gotten quite large. I don't feed it, it just gets loose fish food floating around the tank.
