Anemone for clownfish?

We'd like to add an anemone for clownfish to host. Any suggestions on what type would work well in a 38 gal?

Bubble tips are usually the main ones O. Clowns host but even then it is a tops up if they will actually host it. My pair host my Duncan and torch over my rose bubble tip

If you put the anemone in there it will be no guarantee the clown will go to it.

This is true it Took mine a couple of years before they decided to go into my bubble tip.

They can wander into your flow pumps also go where ever they like and my sting other corals, but most settle within a short time.

They will settle of the lighting and flow in the tank is strong and suitable enough for it. Even then any stressor can cause it to move, my bta went for a walk after years after the flow changed in the tank after a power outage.
