    Hey guys, my tomato clowns have been in the tank since saturday now and there is one who is clearly boss. She chases the other sometimes, but there are no tattered or torn fins, so here's the questions:

    1. Is this just a phase that will pass with a bit of time with one gaining dominance?

    2. The boss hovers less than a centimeter over the anem quite often, is this a good sign that it will host in it soon?

    Thanks guys
    Luke

    The phase probably won't pass, the female generally like to keep her man in line :)

    Sounds like the clown is not to sure of the nemmie, in my experience my clowns start hosting straight away.

    PS: Not all clowns will host in any species of nemmie

    Aaaaaahhhhhhh, i want them to host, oh well. We can't always get what we want i suppose. I also want a cube, but that'll have to wait until a few years time:)

    It is fascinating to watch, I never knew it could be so mind blowingly therapeutic for loss of a better word. It's great:thumbup:

    Sorry for the quality of the photo, the flash seemed to mess it up

    Cool pic, try it without flash, the pics tend to work out better.
