    My two new black captive bred clowns just started hosting my GBTA today.
    Hooray!! The big one is quite keen but the small one isn't drinking the cool aid yet.

    Great stuff, many say they don't host but that's a myth. The last batch of captive bred "percularis" we got in started hosting in the xenias after 4 days.

    At the end of the day its their instinct to host.

    my opinion... breeding something in captivity is one thing...... thinking you taking away its natural instinct is another :) ..... and cool pic! i love the black clowns,but wife and kids dont...oh well :whistling:

    :) And what's the chances ... I got two captive bred clowns at around 2:30pm this afternoon... Earlier this evening I noticed the one doesn't want to leave the frogspawn alone ...
