Clowns are the guests. Its the corals that are the host.
Which ones typically accept clowns?
- toadstool
- Hairy mushroom
- certain Eupyhillia such as hammer , frogspawn and torch)
- Xenia
- GSP

Many more

My clowns love their torch (in a 20g), but they begun to take interest in my GSP, which is beside my/their torch. They like both, but I think they know the torch has a more powerful sting so it would protect them better. But I wouldn't think too much about it, clowns will host in almost anything. I've seen threads/posts in R2R about clowns hosting in zoas.

Low blow..... I've even streamed video to my clowns of other anemone hosting clowns. Now they host my HoB filter.
Chased those two when they were babies in a tank of 100 clowns. Only two that hung out by a tiny BTA. I took the trio. I cheated

I selected these 2 specific clowns because they were being hosted at the LFS. Keep kicking me while I'm down

Are you serious? That’s crazy. I would have been so bummed. I bagged all three together and put BTA in the tank then the clowns. They immediately went for it.
