Do all Clownfish host to Anemones

Clownfish and Anemones have a unique relationship they both need the other to survive. Clownfish will rely on anemones for protection from predators. The stinging tentacles of the anemone which Clownfish are immune to will protect them as other fish are not immune. Anemones rely on clownfish for food. The clownfish will drop food onto the anemone from time to time or swim into the anemone so that the predator will get stung and become fish food for the anemone.

Many clownfish will not go anywhere near anemones and some clownfish have been known to host too many things other than anemones like feather dusters and toadstool corals.

The most common clownfish and anemone to pair are the Ocellaris or Clarkii clownfish with Bubble tip anemones. The Bubble Tip is often called the Rose Bubble Tip or Bulb Tentacle Anemone. They actually come in quite a few colors, ranging from varieties with lots of yellow to green to dark red and purple.

 There have been many recommendations by other people how to get them to pair up. The most common one is placing a picture of another clownfish host in the anemone. Make sure you do some research before trying some options that other people have tried the last thing you want to do is stress your fish or the anemone.
