Haitian nem is just a fancy name for condylactis. I have one just like yours, I can tell it's not an LTA or Sebae as it's tentacles are evenly spread across the disc and cylindrical. The solid orange foot is another surefire sign of a Condylactis. She is most definitely not a BTA, the color of both the foot and tentacles are a sign enough, but the morphology is also completely different in tentacle shape and length (comparing this to a non-bubbly BTA).
Be warned, condies will not host clowns and have a very potent sting, and they will eat slugs, shrimp and snails on occasion. She will also move to the sand in time, they like having their foot buried.

is there anyway a clown can over host an anemone ? he is fairly large ( the clown ) and the anemone has been fine , super opened , has a lot of flow yada-yada. but i did notice today the anemone has very small and closed. any ideas of what could be wrong ? or could it just be expelling the water in the tentacles.

This is likely day to day changes, nothing to worry about, mine can go from 15 inches one day to 7 the next. Its back and forth. As for the Nem hosting the clown ? Ya they can at times get a little sick of it, so to speak if Clown a bit rambunctious, not sure bout that here though, I would just watch the pair and see over next while....
