That is a bubbletip anemone and it's way to small for your clown. Clowns, can kill an anemone by stressing it to the point of death if they are to large. I'd return it and try to get a larger one. Ideally, when looking for an anemone, it's a safe bet to get one twice the size of your clown. If the clown continues to harrass this one, it's never gonna expand. I rescued a bubbletip that was one step from death due to being to small and the clown nearly loving it to death.

Here is a pic of an anemone who was loved to much by a to large maroon clown.
You could QT the clown long enough for the anemone to get settled in and see how that works. Just wanted to give you a heads up.

****, thats impressive.

Oh and by the way, leave the anemone alone, just let it do its own thing.

It does look quite small, might want to take haras advice and take it back if the clown is harassing it to much.
