When my anemone took a wrong turn (it ended up dying, I think it was doomed from the lfs
) my clowns were find aftewards with nothing to host in. And they spent ALL day in the anemone. No stress, no harm, and no hosting of some macroalgae in my tank either. A clown is fine with no anemone. They can even breed with no anemone. It's a symbiosis thing. This has been my experience anyways. I wouldn't waste your money on a fake anemone. Besides from looking tacky (Just my opinion
) they aren't cheap either.
