    ive got this lovely purple tip for the clowns for the past week and my clowns dont even go near it.

    WTH!?:(

    is it because these clowns are tank bred ??

    Clowns will host when & where they feel comfortable, they don't always take to a nennie, I've heard of clowns hosting power heads...

    Agreed! But don't give up hope. I have a pair that took a very long time to go into their anemones. Now they don't go far from them, but they do trade off as to which one they want to snuggle with.

    I have a pair Ocealaris clowns. Female wild caught and male is tank bred. Female always wanted to host in something, like the pincushion. But the male never ever had any urge to do any hosting. Strange part is that I would expected natural instinct to take over and with time, because the female is hosting, the male would adjust to do it as well. But the female lost her natural instinct. Now neither are interested in any hosting at all.

    Currently they are in a nano, with nothing that they can host in. And they laid eggs. There is the proof that they do not need anemones to survive, not even to do the mating dance.
