Recommended Posts

suebedube

I kinda asked this ? once but I got a plate coral ,and love it, but my true(maybe false) perc hasn't noticed it and it's been almost a week. I'm I being too impatient? Probly am. So I was thinking carpet anemone but I saw Hubu's post in the classified and know do not know what to do...

2 other ?s what does bta stand for?

And I tried to feed the plate some frozen brine with some Zoe additive with the curretn off but it did nothing...

Not sure if a plate coral is a good host or not.  i have heard of umbrella leathers, Xenia, and other corals as clownfish hosts.  My two falsies took to a torch coral, it took a few months for them to become attached tho.  Good luck.

Yeah I've heard they take awhile. I'm waiting for mine to host with a hammer

Just to answer one of your questions, BTA stands for Bubble Tip Anemone.  I would advise against keeping any type of anemone in a nano.  They are pretty fussy and move around a lot.

chances are...your fish might not even go to any....

theres really no way of forcing a clown to host, corals or even an anomone.

 

so dont expect it, cuz it will just dissapoint you when you do :)

      Bta's are actually pretty good, and docile anemone's.  I have one in my 15g and it hasn't moved since I put it in.  Just read up on them and find a place in your tank that you know they would like.  Put them there.  Chances are that a bta will attach and not move if the conditions are right for it.  I put mine in my tank when the tank was only 1 1/2 months old and it has done great.  Once they get acclimated they are very hardy.  I will say though that it may take a while for a false perc to take to a bta because that is not one of their natural hosts.  Although they will take to it eventually.  Bta's are more suitable hosts for Tomatos and Maroons.  Good luck!

My pair of Percs seem pretty happy in a Sarcophyton leather coral - day or night
