RFA & Clown, deathmatch?

Recommended Posts

Ok, I know the whole will a RFA host a clown question is like beating a dead horse.  BUT, I noticed today my clown has sting marks all over him and the last few week he's been pestering my massive RFA.  How worried should I be?  The RFA is probably at least 4" across.  My beautiful longfin (read: $$$) clown is maaaaaybe 2". 

 

When I saw him pestering it I was thinking to myself, "well it'll only take a sting or two for him to learn his lesson." Hmm, now he's got at least 3 or 4 sting marks.  I would not consider him particularly bright.  

 

Am I going to wake up to him having been turned into nem lunch pretty soon?  Should I take the nem out? My neighbor would probably take him.

It’s very normal for stings/black marks to appear on the clownfish - it’s in the process of building up necessary immunity. 
 

I have had 3 different clown fish all with different markings, one had just a few and another was covered. The latter obviously scared me at first but a few days/weeks in, they were gone.

 

No need to do anything, let them do their thing and good luck 🙂

If you've ever read of a RFA eating a clownfish, then yours could do it too.  If not, then it would be very, very unlikely IMO.  (Not sure myself.)

Thanks guys, I'll leave it be for now then.  I'd love for it to host him. We shall see.  I've never heard of a RFA hosting a clown, but maybe mine will be the first. Or he'll give up and host the power head like a regular clown.
