confused clownfish

one of my clownfish is treating my sea star like an anenome. its wiggling up against it just like it would to an anenome? should i be worried, or is my clownfish just bicurious and looking for a good time with something different? lol

It's not uncommon for clown fish to seek a host even if an anemone is not available. Wanna good laugh? Offer the clown some krill or squid and watch it feed the starfish...LOL. I had a clownfish in the store I work at take to a fake plant as if it were an anemone and would shove food in the branches...LOL.

My clown lives in my colt coral. Whatever they feel comfortable about. I would not worry. Good Luck
