I second that had a BTA and my clown pair hosted the corner of the tank for a long time then moved to my hammer coral and have never left it even through a tank upgrade. They will host any thing they want. Even heard of them hosting a power head.

Yes but clownfish do not need an anemone, this chart refers to the clownfish natural host anemone in the wild. There is no guarantee that a clownfish will host any your tank. To say your clown will be bored without one is misleading, the OP is someone who is coming here for the first time to get beginner info and encouraging a purchase of an advanced invert like an anemone is not right, just yet...

I'm sorry to stray away from the topic more, but I just want to take this opportunity to learn something and correct me if I'm wrong. The reason for the relationship in the wild with anemone and clown, is because its beneficial to both right? The clown has more exposure to predators which encourages it a lot where in a tank (especially with tank bred clowns) they don't feel as threatened and aren't more apt to host one. I've actually seen a clown in a LFS hosting a type of coral, not sure what type.

I think, at this point, the OP has received several opinions from salties, i dont really see why this thread has turned into a clownfish debate. It seems as though this thread has served its purpose.

During the day my clowns hand out in my hammer coral. Which they defiantly do aggressively protect. But at night they sleep in the back corner of the tank. They are very interesting to watch and have really neat personality's. A pistol shrimp and Gobby are also a very cool relationship to watch too.
