    They are not listed as being compatible, but stranger things have happened in this hobby. I suppose if there is nothing else in the tank for them to host in then you might get lucky, but it's a chance you'll have to take.

    haha tnx, I bought 2 "HOPING and PRAYING" they would "CLICK" Sadly things didn't go so well the bigger one killed the smaller one (This is now in a 4ft 300L) Sigh... Seems I have no luck whatsoever when it comes to Clownfish. Oh well lets c if the big one takes to the nennie, would meen something good came out of all the chaos.

    My maroon has hosted to an upsidedown perlemeon shell. He even knows when the lights are about to go out because he can be seen "going to bed". Very cute.
