The gigantic carpet nem will host a wide variety of clownfish including percs and clarkiis. Prefers to bury its foot within the sand but close to the rocks...often attaching to the aquarium base.

Use caution as this nem can sting anything within 12" of itself,it will also eat fish other then clowns.This nem is more suited to a species tank and a experienced keeper,feed on meaty preparations
