Tips to get a clownfish to use a host anemone
Clownfish and anemones often share a symbiotic relationship in the wild that aquarium hobbyists attempt to recreate in home aquaria.

Rearranging your rockwork or adding new (ideally larger) fish to your aquarium is often enough to evict your clownfish from its current home into the waiting tentacles of a host anemone. Hobbyists have also found success placing a mirror or photograph of a clownfish next to their aquarium to persuade the clown in the tank that this intruder is a threat and that an anemone would be a safer home base.
