Glad you were able to get your Spotcinctus clowns.

As for the Storm clowns, I heard something interesting @ a LFS. We were out of town & this LFS had a Storm clown in a tank with a few fish, a nem & a few corals. Storm clowns are particularly striking. Their pattern combined with the way clowns swim makes them really stand out in a tank. We had not ordered clowns yet, so I asked the guy about his observations on Storm clowns.

He said that they adapted to nems faster than any clown he had seen. He also said they were particularly possessive of their nems, even more than average clown. This little Storm clown was barely 0.5 inches long. The guy said when he put his hand in the tank, the little Storm would immediately attack his hand. He had noticed this about several Storm clowns that had come into the shop. He said usually he did not see such defensive behavior from small juvenile clowns, but rather the bigger more mature clowns.

Just saying, if his observations are correct, you probably won't have a problem with your Storms being hosted by an anemone soon.

They have been in this tank for almost 6 months and show zero interest in nem but hopefully soon. The Spotcinctus went for the biggest nem in 1 day. I guess my Storms are picky either that or the nem is picky in who it will let host.
