I was wondering, I have 2 true Percula clowns . Seem to be paired. (Did not buy them like that.) They have taken to a electric green LTA. I want to purchase a Rose Bubble Tip Anenome. Will the percs switch to inhabiting that anenome instead? Does a genus type anenome attract more to true percs than others?

It will depend on the fish, There is no one correct answer. Some will stay in the LTA, Some will move back and forth between them and some may move to the Rose BTA.

Percs host in H. magnifica in the wild. But this is a VERY hard anemone to keep. I would guess that they will stay with whatever they are in. Good luck.

My percs took to my Rose in about a day

My pair of Perculas took to my Rose Anemone on the first day. I have asked the same question you are, and I have found that some will switch or go to an anenome and some won't. One of my perculas thought my Toadstool Leather was an anemone, until I got it the real thing, it has never gone back to the toadstool again. I hope this helps.
