clownfish hosting sandbed?

i have had a pair of young clownfish for almost a month, i believe they have finally decided who will become the female. i am curious though as to what counts as 'hosting behavior' ? There is a patch of sand that they are constantly at, they sleep here and always come back to this one spot. Would this be what they are hosting? I don't have an anenmone and wont for quite some time, but I was just curious as to what that hosting behavior looks like?

and they are such odd little fish, from what ive gathered, everyone's are all oddballs.

yeah,they will host just about anything from HA to a clay pot,as for the sexing the most dominate will become the female, the female will start to outgrow the male very quickly.After a while they start to do the twitching dance.
