Clown trying to host

Today i walking into my room and saw my clown almost touching my anemone. He never did this before and has never hosted my anemone. As i watche he began to stock his head into my anemone. The anemone didnt seem to happy and tried to close on him. Is there a possibility the anemone might host my clown and if so how long till I see them hosting each other???

I've seen a video of a clown sticking half his body into an anemones mouth and nothing happened. But I guess anythings possible!

If the clown is nuzzling his face into the nem, then she's probably thinking of hosting, but I have heard stories of nems eating their clowns too. But a nem shouldn't be able to eat a healthy clown. I would feed the nem just to be in the safe side.
