    Hey Peeps, how do I get my Clowns to move from the Elegance (from old tank) ? My concern is that the Clowns will continue to grow and damage the coral. Or should I sell the Elegance?

    That elegance looks more than big enough to host those clowns
    In the pics it also does not look like it is very disturbed by having them in there

    I would say the hard rule is yes they don't like hosters however I know of one or two that never even noticed they were hosting. I would leave it and see how the coral goes.....

    common clowns harldy hurt corals they host,instead they will(if accepted) care and feed the coral causing better overall health... tomato and if im corect african clowns tend to be rough with there hosts

    After dark, they try and creep in when its closed up already. Its been this way for 2 months and I thought it was cute and they would move along but they are growing.

    Thanks guys, now I have a lonely Anemone. Maybe I'll add another 2 and see if they take to the Anemone. Would that be wise?
