Seeing that you're going to be changing the DSB in any case, I'd suggest to get much finer sand.

Kids' Playsand works very well and is very cheap, about R40 for a 20KG bag at most Regies outlets and other toy shops.

The prefereable grain size of substrate for a DSB is sugar fine.

It's a symbiotic relationship and I think the crab's part of the deal is some protection for the nennie. So I won't be surprised if he gives the clown the boot...or claw :)

Ja I was VERY surprised when i woke up yesterday and saw that Nemo moved in seeing as he never even took a look at the anemone! My first reaction was trying to see where the crab went.. imagine the surprise when i saw the two sharing!!!!!
