Clownfish hosting Duncan

I have a pair of Picasso clowns and they keep trying to host my Duncan coral polyps and I'm worried they will kill it off. Is there an anemone that I can put in the tank that they will host instead?

There is no way to force clowns to go after one thing or another. That and throwing an anemone into the tank might not even accept the clowns! Try moving the duncan and see if that helps, because it can irritate the coral and lead towards recession or death.
