    Well I’ve heard of clownfish moving coral and today I saw it happen 2 times. I bought a monti about 5 inches and placed it near their anemones. Watching from upstairs I saw the clown get under the monti and push it over. It’s not glued yet my glue is arriving tomorrow.

    The second time it pushed a acan colony on a rock that is a good size with some weight to it

    Craziness!!!!!!

    I do have a new large anemone that they are hosting among some others in that general area of the tank.

    The nem is huge and about to split into a few nems anytime!

    I’m thinking of keeping only nems in their Area if the tank. Move my lps to the other side
    Anyone have a similar experience? My clowns are maroon wild caught

    I have a maroon that does the same thing, the only differences is they pushes my frag/rock further from their gbta cave.

    It's hard to read a maroon

    They're probably saving your corals from a stinging death ;)

    I would like to think that but most likely not! Lucky for me I have my metallic glass cleaner with a long stem that distracts them
