Artificial corals and clownfish

I was thumbing through the latest Drs. Foster Smith catalog, and saw that one of their new products is a rather convincing artificial coral made of polyurethane.

My tank is a FOWLR, I don't have the experience or a mature enough tank (or the lighting) for a live coral. So I was wondering: could my clownfish possibly host an artificial coral, or are they too smart for that?

i think they look real but do not feel the same so my guess would be he is a little to smart for that trick

Having clowns host in corals that are natural is iffy so having them host in a fake coal would be even more iffy. IMO.

And if he was to do so, I could just see the fake coral being full of food from the clown trying to feed it.
