    you cant get a clown to host and there is no guarantee that they will host in anything. Its up to them

    Welcome buddy :thumbup:

    As mentioned above having a Nennie after only 2 months of your tank running is usually the start of a sad story. I had issues with leathers after two months so I wish you and your Nennie luck buddy.

    It is an awesome little tank. Have it for the same amount of time that you have had yours, just battling to get the algae to clear up before I add more live stock. I currently got over 4kgs of live rock in it, a peppermint shrimp; flame shrimp (it is so gorgeous); a clam; two mushrooms and a rough crab. I got pics up of it here: Newbie with a tank - Marine Aquariums of South Africa
    Would love to see pics of your setup! :)
