    Hi. Welcome to MASA!

    How old is your tank. Anemones need stable and mature systems and the general rule is to wait till your tank is 9 months old before you can add an anemone. Also clowns don't need an anemone at all. Maybe try adding a hammer or torch coral and see if they host that. My one clown even hosts my mushrooms!

    Regarding your post earlier a regal tang will be far too big for your tank.

    If your goal is to get the clowns to host in something, then please do not even try the hammer coral frags either. They will most likely be too much for a frag and it will eventually die. There are guys who do have clowns hosting in hammer corals, but then the coral are normally rather big.

    I had clowns hosting in a pincushion. Others that hosted in hairy mushrooms.

    Clowns do not really need something to host in. Tank bred clowns especially.
