    Hi all,

    I'd like to hear your experiences with different breeds of clownfish and tube anemones. I'm thinking of getting either skunk or clark's clowns but I want to be sure they're naturally compatible, and I want to hear from you all, since I often see discrepencies between online articles and real life experience.

    There are not any clowns that are compatible with tube anemones. Well at least none that will host in them.

    When you say a couple, do you mean a couple of species or a couple of anemones in a 55? Its usually not a good idea to mix species of anemones in a small tank. you'll risk agressive behavior.

    so a tube and a bta would be inviting chemical warfare eh? I think I might just go with a bubble tip they seem to have the widest compatibility or an H. crispa tho' I haven't seen a common name for them yet.

    Thanks for the help.
