I am new to the hobby and was wondering why a small clown fish would all the sudden go to the anemone? It's the first time any of the 3 clowns have gone to the anemone. I love it but was wondering why? If it means anything? Thanks in advance......

If memory serves me, they get 'all up on' the anenomes
to get the 'venom' rubbed off on them so that they become
venomous themselves...... Finding Nemo Style.....

Kind of like "poision arrow" frogs.... deadly when wild,
I've heard of people having heart attacts from the venom
"absorbing" through the palm....... but check it out....
when you have them "in captivity".... they become non
venomous.... its what they eat that makes them venomous...


Nature!! ... what a trip... she's slick... Peace JT

............ps you need to get a little french cleaner shrimp named Jaque.. lol..

Ohhhhhh yea, maybe I meant to say it makes them "immune"
to venom, rather than "venomous", in the clownfish case... can't eat a fish
face first in a poision ivy patch... "same difference"... Peace JT....

........never had a clownfish in my life tho, so ;)
