    Thats a hit and miss bud.... Clowns host where they want or never will..... Tank bred clowns will also not host very easily.... But you sure your nennie gonna survive the new tank syndrome?

    I have read in many places that Clowns will not always rush off to their nearest Nennie and host it. Weird but true. I have two captive bred Clowns in my tank and they swim around allday in a school with my Cromus :blush:

    I must admit though I do not have a Nennie in my tank yet but I do have a green bubble tipped coral and they have not gone near the thing. In some ways I am glad as it has given the coral time to settle 100% into my tank so far before it is molested by two eager Clowns :thumbup:

    As Maxisoft has stated above its a 50/50 chance that they will or will not :whistling:

    Depends on what clowns they are, not all clown species are compatible with all anemones, you have to match them up.
