It wouldn't hurt to try, but I think the clowns would be more afriad of it then host it. It could work though.

How about a koosh ball?

Looks like a blue urchin.

I wonder if you could use the rubberband idea and then after they get used to it put the anemone in the place of the rubber band anemone.

Pretty much defeats the purpose of using pseudo-hosts to save anemones.

Actually what I was trying to do was get my clowns to host the one I have already.

I completely agree. My clownfish appear much happier and less stressed since they discovered the anemone and bonded with it.

I don't think clownfish are suited to swimming in the open water. It looks tiring. The anemone allows them to rest.

Even though there are no predators in the tank, the clownfish probably don't know it. Having no place to take shelter no doubt stresses them.

Yea, but I'm not made of money. I may try the koosh ball idea. Could always put it in the direct path of a ph and let it make it look alive.
