    Just thought I'd share with you guys.
    It worried me at first but found out it's very possible.
    My clowns ducked into the torch coral and the cardinal took its turn in the Nennie.
    How cool

    It does happen, not sure how common it is.
    Trust me if you don't know about this you stress your ass off worrying about why is he so close.What if he touches the nennie,is the nennie gonna eat it,would the nennie eat him.
    But I've read up and spoken to Lawrence from @aquaria-S.A and he assured me it was ok many months ago.
    They produce the same mucus clowns produce to prevent them from getting stung then becoming nennie food.

    I once watched a documentary about this and when small this is a very common thing but as they get older they wonder off...

    But clowns are pretty tough to host a anemone with.
