Its entiely possible for nems to eat fish. It's not the norm but it does happen. Big reason I got rid of mine, I was always worried he'd eat a fish LOL

How big is your tank? Could he be hiding somewhere?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

You should take revenge and eat the anemone whole.

What type of anemone is it? Some of them aren't exactly host material and if the clown tried to host it, he may have gotten a surprise.

A condy is not a natural host for clownfish, so it's not uncommon for them to eat whatever fish they can get a hold of.
