Clownfish are reef safe and can be kept with non aggressive invertebrates and corals, and most clowns will host an anemone present in the tank. It can be found individually, or more commonly, in pairs or small groups within the same anemone such as Heteractis Magnifica or Stichodactyla Mertensii. Captive-bred fish can also be less likely to use a host anemone than wild-caught fish.
