How to stop a clown from hosting a hammer coral?

Do anyone have any idea how i can stop my false percula clown from trying to host my Hammer coral? It started to damaged it after i put in on the same about a week ago, so i moved it back to midlevel, and now it's trying to host it there as well, and it really starting to cause some damage.

I dont think you can without removing one or the other. Unless you introduce something it likes more. Clowns are crazy. They will host sand. Mine host gsp.

It's hard, more so when the coral is small. It's not uncommon for a clown to kill a coral it has decided to host. I got my clown to host a silicone anemone. It really liked it too. Way to funny...

Mine loves my hammer. I just let it stay there. No harm no foul. As far as yours I dont know if you`ll be able to keep it out.
