Clownfish Question

Question. When I purchased my two clownfish I also purchased the anemone they were living in. Even in the bag, both clownfish sat comfortable inside the anemone. Once in the tank however, niether clown are rubbing up or using the anemone at all. The attached picture took a while to get them both in the same shot. Is there a reason for this? Is there anything I need to do. I've been hand feeding the anemone because I fear the clowns will let it starve.

it's most likely because they are still not sure of there new environment ,
but with that said there is no guarantee they will host it at all , they may find something else to host just give them time to settle in

Right. Clowns will not always host an anemone. It just depends on what they want to do.

Anemones don't need to be fed, they will get what they need with the right lighting. It won't starve if it's not being hosted...
