Tom. Clown not Hosting BTA?


New member
I just recently bought a Tom. clown and a GBTA from the LFS. When i put the Tom. Clown in it slowly found the GBTA. It looked like the clown was loving it but for more than a day now the clown has been hiding behind a rock. Any ideas whats wrong.. or is this Clown just scared?

It took a week for my Tomato Clownfish to finally host my BTA after introucing the BTA into the tank...give him some time.

Agreed, it took my pair almost 3 weeks to host in my GBTA, sometimes it may even take longer for the clown(s) to host. Pretty much it is up to them to decide when they want to move in...
