Clownfish and Sabae Anemone

I just got a Sabae anemone and was wondering if my false percula or maroon clownfish would host it at any point.

They might. Never know with clowns. I have seen them host sabaes before.

They all swim around in a group but neither of the four seem to know what it is they just hover above it

If they are tanked raised you have about a 50/50 chance of them hosting anything!!
I have two tank raised false that I bought when they were about 3/4" and they have never wanted to host anything!!!

I read that if they see another clown host one that there is a better chance that they will try one

Yes I agree. Like mr x said "one will kill the other". I think he meant species. The maroons will eventually get aggressive if not already. They also get much larger than the false.

When my clowns wouldn't,t host my nem I tried putting them in a small container together full of holes and put in the tank. After the clowns were forced to touch the tenacles they never left it again. Worked for me.
