nope.. you can get that at any time... you could keep an eye out for one that is already hosting. Mine took about 15 seconds to find the nem.. buddies ever since.

granted it's a small tank, but my ocellaris wanted nothin to do with it

I recommend a red bubble tip (E. quadricolor) and common clownfish, Ocellaris. Both could be obtained tank raised and both are super hardy as far as light, flow and other parameters.

Hope this helps.
