    Hi RiaanP.
    Thanks for the Information.

    I do have 2 clowns currently in the tank, one normal ocellaris clown and one black ocellaris clown.

    The black clown was once caught by the anemone, the anemone started closing to a point where the clowns face was completely closed by the anemone and the clown could not get away.
    I hade to pull the clown free.

    This is mainly the reason I am asking this question.

    most likely the clown introduces himself to quickly to the anemone and the anemone recognized the clown as food. They normally start slowly, gently touching the anemone.
