Google "which anemones doe clowns host". You should find a link that shows which clowns are most likely to host which nems. Depends on which clowns you have. If they are tank raised the odds go down that they will host at all. Here is one link that I found.

Don't put an anemone or coral in your rank specifically for your clown to host, because there's a decent liklyhood that they may not take to it at all. Put what you want in your tank, and they decide to host something if they want.

Occellaris clowns will host Long Tentacles Anemone. My clowns were so happy having to host one. They hosted it within minutes. Here's a pic:

Crispas will always invite a clown as they are more dependent on clowns then most others also carpets are a pretty good bet I have a green and a crispa the clarki loves them both and my ocsilris clown try's to host the crispa but gets kicked out all the time

My clown fish live in the cabbage coral and the green brain. They both got a bad deal living in my tank... no anemone, even though I would like to have one but I have too much coral.
