    A Match made in heaven, clowns constantly spawning underneath pincushion and totally undisturbed to being a host :)

    Pincushions are definitely first choice I reckon. They can't damage the coral because it's so tough and they look good in it. Ones I've had always seem to go straight for the Euphyllias, and they inevitably end up doing major damage to the coral.

    My clown is lost: ) I have a massive pin and he chooses a tiny rbta to try and stick his head in it. The client is about 5x the size of the nenny. It just looks wrong on so many different levels.
