Finding Nemo? Look no further!

Just got a new addition to the reef tank yesterday. I adopted this beautiful long tentacle anemone. Some of you have probably seen Finding Nemo, and know that a clown fish is most happy while living (hosting) in an anemone. So, we bought our anemone a Clarki Clown to keep him company. This is a two way relationship. The anemone provides protection for the Clown in the form of a hiding place, and those tentacles can sting other fish, the clown fish is immune to these stings. In return the clown fish is kind enough to gather food and drop it in the mouth of the anemone...paying rent in a way! Here are some photos, enjoy!
