I bought a bubble tip anemone for my clown who pays it no attention. I also got a bubble coral at the same time, and he's actually saddling up to it and even dove straight into it once. I've seen clowns go for more tentacley corals like elegans and torch before, but never a bubble. Go figure. . .

I've found in my experience that tank raised clown fish, especially Ocellaris clown fish are hard to get to host to an Anemone.

For some reason they tend to like corals and rockwork to host to.

Maroon Clownfish, while much more agressive seem to host to an Anemone every time.

I don't know why but it's what I've found over the years. Just seems the tank raised Ocellaris clown's don't really know about hosting to an Anemone, it seems like it's just not natural for them.
