Post your photos of clowns hosting

Greetings fellow reefers!

Would any of you be willing to post your pics and/or video of clownfish hosting anenomes? I have read numerous posts about "teaching" the clown to host by taping a picture to the tank. The only trouble, difficult to find photos for this.

I am particularly looking for ocellaris hosting RBTA. However, it might be nice to post a variety of species for the benefit of others.

If there is already such a thread, please let me know. I found one pic in the anemone FAQ (sticky) and am simply looking for more material. Search turned up lost of posts mentioning this technique, but pictures had been removed!

Please post! Thanks.

Here is a video that I took when I temporarily added 6 picassos from my growout into my reef. I specifically wanted them to 'bond' with the anemones.
After a few hours, I removed the nets and although the fish would explore the 120 gallon reef, all six would take turns playing in the anemones and slept there together during the dark hours. They were sold and now live in Hong Kong somewhere...

This method works well for me.

Wow- beautiful pics everyone. Elegance coral- especially love the one posted #5. Too cute.

I just noticed there's another thread running/active titled "Show how you clown" which also includes great nem and clown photos.

Keep them coming!

Not quite an anemone... OK, not even close... but here's some videos of a pair of Gold Bar Maroon Clowns that took to a Zebra Moray Eel. They used to have an anemone but loved it to death. I think that once they have hosted in anything, they will make the move to something else to host in.

This is a pic of one of our clowns in an bta tank.... We got him to host by taping a pic of other maroons hosting anenomes on the glass - it really works!! Just leave it on the glass for awhile and let him figure it out....
