Weird clownfish behaviour

Recommended Posts

So suddenly my clownfish has decided he wants to suck on my anthelia. He takes it in his mouth and just seems to suck on it. He hasnt bitten any off yet but its just weird

It could be testing it out to see if it would be a suitable host?????

I didnt know theyd suck on tentacles or polyps. And its been in there for a couple months and the clown has never done that. Its tank raised but the other day it was trying to rub itself in my new colt coral so maybe adding that triggered something

Normal. It thinks that its going to build up immunity to its sting by sucking on it. They do that when they are going to host things. Its a confused little fella. It thinks its an anenome.

Day 2. Still sucking on the tentacle. The new little clown is hiding behind her as it sucks now.
