Clown hosting a frog spawn

How on earth do I stop her? Sigh.

I don't want my frog spawn to die. It won't even open much now cause the clown won't leave it alone.

This is when it opened before. It's bigger now but the clown won't stay away so it can't open.

Set in an anemone or two to give it more housing options.

I put a condi in already hoping the tentacles would attract the clown. No such luck. I'm not a fan of anemones so one is enough. I've never been stung and hope to keep it that way.

Clowns don't normally host condy's, usually bubble tips and carpets. Sorry. Good luck!

Only certain anemones are deadly. Some anemones don't have strong enough nemocyts to harm humans.

I bought a hammer coral with the hope that I can get a clown to host it. I am letting the coral grow before I get my clown so it won't bother it much. That is how i hope it will work anyway, knowing my luck the clown will host a power head. Will the coral be ok if it is big enough?
