    Is it normal for different clown species to host in one anemone, i've got a H Magnifica and my two Ocellaris clowns and one Tomato clown are all hosting in the same one, they sometimes do mock attacks but not really agggresive. Has anyone experienced this before.

    How old are the clownfish? I don't see them lasting long term.

    no its not normal, different clown species are aggressive towards one another and the tomato clown is famous for being angry, I agree with brenda, you will eventually sit just with the tomato clown

    I would decide which ones you want to keep, and find the others a new home. You have a ticking time bomb here unless your system is HUGE. If it is there is a chance they will live peacefully, (on opposite ends of the tank) but never a guarantee.
