    Hi All,

    Just wanted to ask a quick question because I have been doing quite a lot of reading but am still not satisfied with the answers.

    Recently in the last few days I have noticed my Maroon Clown swimming right up to my hammer coral. It only happens in the morning while the lights are off and when the lights go out at night. The clown will swim up to it and hover by it then turn to one side and now and then brush it slightly by moves away quite quickly. It will also swim around the hammer and not touch it but it will swim extremely close without touching it. The maroon isn't trying to host the hammer is it? Its just very perculiar (haha) behaviour and I have had the clown for a year and a half and the hammer for 2 months.

    Lol that's awesome! I read that they will try to host anything. I would love my clown to host the hammer but at the same time I'm worried because I read they can really damage corals. I will try to get a pic of it when the lights are on if the clown goes near it so you have a better idea.
