Will Atlantic Anenome host?

My LFS has Atlantic Anenomes for sale, and i was just curious as to whether or not they will host clowns or anything? Any pros and cons would be good too, TIA

Hey Chaz, How is the tank coming along? I would wait a while before adding a anemone. Not a good idea for a new tank. Did you get your new lights in? Most people call condy anemones atlantic anemones. Check this thread.

Certain species of damsel have been known to seek "refuge" in them but no fish species will specifically "host" in them. There are however species of inverts that will take up residence.

I had a condy that hosted 2 clowns - a perc and a sebae. You can see photos in my gallery. However, I have sworn off of anemones since having one die while on vacation and taking almost the whole tank with it. Beautiful, but not worth the risk in the long run.
You know you are a true fish-o-holic if you can field strip any powerhead on the market.

Your condylactis look suspiciously like a LTA (Macrodactyla doreensis) but without more detailed photo's, I can't be 100% sure.
