    Its possible they'll never host them. Some take time, even 3 months or more before they give it any mind.

    be patient. give the clowns a bit of time to see if they will accept the anemone. The anemonies recommended for Amphiprion Percula are as follows: Heteractis Crispa, Heteractis Magnifica, Stichodactyla gigantea.

    Stichodactyla Mertensii - Mertens' Sea Anemone
    Stichodactyla gigantea - Gigantic Sea Anemone
    Heteractis Magnifica - Magnificent Sea Anemone (Radianthus ritteri)
    Heteractis Crispa - Leathery Sea Anemone

    Hope some of this helps. above are the names of anemones your clowns may accept. good luck, give it about 3 to 6 months for the young fish to mature.
