Clowns will host almost anything they want to. Anemones are best left in the ocean where they will live far longer than our tanks will be around. Unless you know you are getting a captive fragged anemone I would suggest not buying one.

cmor is correct. anemones will host in a lot of different things. Try and get captive bred clowns. They are better adapted to tank life.
Here is a picture of my Clarkii hosting a fake anemone.

I call the anemone my "rubber tip anemone". Hahaha lol

Does the clarkii ever try to feed the fake nem? just curious lol. I have 2 Nem's in my tank, a long tentacle that my saddleback host and a sebae that my pair of percula's both host. But i have seen a maroon clown that host some Frilly mushrooms lol.
