Bonding Two Ocellaris With LTA

I have two young clownfish, one black, one orange. The black one has shown interest in my LTA, but the orange one pays it no attention. If I bond the two fish in isolation, then reintroduce them to the anemone tank, will they both eventually inhabitant the LTA (that is, if they both get along)?

No guarantees. LTA is not a natural host. If you introduce a natural host, they will instinctually accept.

It might work but I would not do it. I would just let them do their thing.

My male clownfish was the first one started living in my bta. My female clownfish followed about a week later.
