I went out and got a fake yellow bubble tip anemone to see if he'll get attached to that, but the fish is actually afraid of it since it won't come near it. Instead, i put it next to the hammer to see if it will scare off the clown and it worked for a few hours and then he went back to trying to host it. i don't mine it, but one part of the hammer looks like is getting damaged since it came off the rock already.
The LFS suggest a real bubble tip anemone. They said they are not hard to keep, but i don't know if they actually are.

I don't know. I have never had one and there is a chance that the clown won't host it.

BTA's aren't hard to keep if you have the right lights and a big enough tank, but as TC says, there's no guarantee it will host it. It's more than likely to not since it's already hosting the Hammer, but even with no Hammer it might not. Mine doesn't host anything including the BTA.

the one part of the coral that it really rushes against is detaching from the rock. the polyps are not filling up like the rest, they are very tiny and they look like they have been popped.
