my clowns are slowly getting closer and closer to the anemone, is that a good sign?

There are many species of LTAs. One species comes from the Atlantic Ocean and have never "seen" clownfish, and usually won't host clowns. One like this:

My LFS has these, sometimes.

You would have a better chance of getting your clown to use a carpet or bubble tip anemone. I have never seen one in a LT.

Well there is nothing saying that it will host anything at all, some do, some dont. You will just have to wait and see. If it starts to graze then it will likely host.

My clarkii was in my tank for about 6 hours before he hosted my BTA.

I really think it's up to the clowns, give them a while. Apparently according to the picture in another post they'll host feather dusters as well as frogspawn. I personally have seen them host large clumps of hair algae in favor of an anemone. Just give them time.
