A clarki male, bicinctus female, juvenile domino damsels, and a carpet anemone home

I thought I would share this in this forum.
Iíve seen this phenomenon when an anemone is with a group of clownfish, youíll also see a school of juvenile damsels sheltering it. The damsels I have are still acclimating themselves to the carpet, as a few of them got eaten by it.

That's really interesting!

I have three Chromis Viridis that are also trying to get into my magnifica. In the evening they will squish around the base of it, and even try getting in. One of my clowns will chase them out occasionally, but gives up and just lets them be. Not sure how closely related the damsels and chromis are, but seems very interesting. They even do the similar dance.

That’s very interesting. I’ve seen footage of cardinal fish do that as well. Fascinating
