View Full Version : Amphiprion ocellaris pair in love with Torch, not blue tipped Sebae?

I have a new blue tipped Sebae. The new anemone is nicely bound to a rock on the sand bed and is looking great. Problem: my ocellaris pair is still ignoring the Sebae in favor of the torch coral. The torch hates the anemones and often closes down when the larger of the ocellaris tries to nestle in it. It's been a few days, but I'm wondering if the clowns will ever start supporting the Sebae. Should I be concerned at this point? 2 options are to replace the clowns or remove the torch.

Sebae anemones are not natural hosts for ocellaris, so they may never go to the anemone from their torch coral.

Success. Sebae is finally hosting Clown pair. Larger Clown swam over to the torch for one brief second just to break-up and has ignored the Torch since.
