However, there is something important about these interesting creatures that we must take in to consideration when keeping Anemones in captivity. The base of the Anemone is generally referred to as its foot. This is where the Anemone attaches itself into rock crevices in the wild, in an aquarium with live rock, or on the glass of an aquarium from time to time. Anemones will move from location to location until they find a place where they have the proper amount of light, as well as getting a good amount of food.
Pairing up a clownfish with an anemone is a task which many marine fish enthusiasts undertake each year. For many, the vision of a clownfish playfully and enthusiastically cuddling itself into the soft tentacles of an anemone for protection invokes a "feel good" moment and is often the driving force behind someone setting up their first marine aquarium at home.
If you are thinking about putting together a freshwater aquarium of community fish, you have some great fish to choose from. A community aquarium is one that contains more than one species of fish. Many times, the variety of fish do not occur together in nature, but you can find fish of compatible temperament and water requirements that can co-exist well. This helps to develop an aquarium full of color and interest.
