In a recent Salt Solutions someone asked if clownfish will accept a tube anemone as a host. The answer was correctly no, and went on to explain that “instead of providing shelter and protection for the clownfish, the tube anemones would quickly consume them!” The column goes on to describe the care of these animals and the answer to that question ends with solid advice as well: “Tube anemones are filter feeders...twice weekly feedings of live or frozen small foods seem to suffice, but the emphasis should be on small and frequent feedings as time will allow.” I think that the advice ...read more.See other Articles.
