It's foot may get through the vertical slits, but gently pushing it's foot from the outside works well. Never pull an anemone's foot.

Well you push him through from the outside of the colander back into it. It's usually the foot that tries to get through the colander slits. It's plastic so it won't affect your water and the anemone can't stick to it.

That looks like a condy anemone and an occelaris clown. Condy's aren't known to host clowns very well if at all.

As for the stringy stuff, did you happen to feed it anything lately? Even small pieces of target fed food can agitate and/or stress the anemone.

I believe condys are from the Atlantic therefore never see clownfish in the wild. I could never get one to host
