The guy at my LfS told me it is a condy , my clarki won't go anywhere near it... Just one more question would it be a bad idea if I got another anemone one for my clarki to host?

Here's the thing with anemones, they make their living by eating fish So if you don't want your fish to get eaten by an anemone, you shouldn't have one in the tank. You take your chances every time you mix the two.
That being said, the Fla. Condy (Condylactus pasiflora) is not a known fish host so other than for looks, it's not really going to do much for your tank. HOWEVER, the other Atlantic Condy (A.K.A. Haitian Pink Tip) Condylactus gigantis, is a known fish hoster. Many clowns that use bubble anemones will also use these for hosting. What your pic looks like is a regular condy so the choice is yours as to whether you want to keep him or not. Traditionally, Fla Condys are found on the grass flats, in large colonies whereas the HPTs are found on the reefs not in large groups. That might help explain why they are not good reef anemonies and may hurt the corals.

Hope this helps
