Clown won't settle in

with an anemone ??

That can vary widely, and it's really unpredictable. It's like buying a home. Some people find one they like right away, others take months or years to choose a home they want. It's pretty much the same thing with the clownfish, he may find it soon, he may never decide to move in.

It`s about 50/50 whether he will host the anenome or not. Mine would not.

over the years i've bought anenome and clowns but never had them together. At this point I've given up, but was thinking and I'd like to get some opinions if I can just by a clown and an anenome that are already "together"?

That would be your best bet.

i would say that is the best way to go because as mike said if you buy them seperate they may or may not host it

In addition if you buy a clown that is 'bonded' with an anenome the loss of the anenome causes considerably stress on the clown and can even result in the clowns death.
