    Recently introduced a bigger clown into the system, say 3 months ago, yesterday just as i got back from work, he grabbed my wrasse (cleaner) and took him toward the nennie the couple of clowns share, didn't seem to hurt either fish and the wrasse didn't seem to or want to struggle free. However he manged to get away when he was released very shortly before landing in the nennie.

    Weird or you think I got a cab leak in the car, may be getting to my head?

    Not on weed, feed the fish weed, sea-weed. not sure here...

    I have read that clowns will sometime feed their host anemone!!!
    That is so cool. Is your nennie ok? Clowns seem to do this if the nennie is sick.

    Will try and find the article.

    I had tomato clowns ages ago. The female always fed the nennie first. And always bit me, when with my hands in the tank.
    I had a Porcelain crab, who use to pull the piece calamari right into the nennies mouth.
