Something I see a little more frequent than I like is hobbyists saying that their clownfish are "hosting the anemone" when in reality its the opposite and the anemone is the host for the clown pair.. Now that we have cleared the air for everyone lets talk about your clownfish!

What inanimate object, coral, or piece of rubble is the host to your clownfish or clown pair? Currently my Spotcintcus Clowns are living in the Long Polyp Toadstool in my lagoon, they don't have a nem to play with so they found the next best thing!

Let's discuss!

Periwinkle has claimed the Waving Hand Anthelia... similar to Xenia but much longer polyps.

Am I the only one that sees the word "pig" written on this live rock, directly above the left clown in the bottom photo?

My current pair love the two malus they have. The females does not share, but the male must at times. :)

I have had them claim an overflow pipe, powerhead, kenyan tree, frogspawn, torches, corners with a rock. They are funny creatures.

Goni’s all day. I think they think they are too good for a nem. Clown fish!! Am I right. Took the nice red bubble tip that I got them and put it in my son’s 20 gal. His clown fish don’t like it either

Either my clown's trying to tell me something or it's an Acan.
You may be right about the acan but man ... it really looks like your clown graffiti tagged your rock in that pic... talk about claiming that feather duster as it's territory. You may need to name that clown Pig after this... LOL

Yep, return and the upper left side of the back wall.
Ditto...stupid clowns ! I kept my BTA in my tank for them and it’s literally right in front of them, but do they go there? Noooooo...back wall. And now that dang nem has split a 1000x leaving me the task of getting them out which is NO fun !
