Just wanted to post a vid of my male Maroon Clown that just started hosting in my Pink Palythoa's.

About 6 months ago, I made the selfish mistake of wanting my clowns to host an anemone so I bought a Green Bubble Tip and they hosted it right away but the female was very rough with it and killed it and the thing polluted my tank and had to run carbon for about 3 days. I should not have contributed to the removal of another nem from the ocean that a Clown really needed.
Anyways, the clown has been hanging out under a ledge since then with this colony of Paly's 8inches under him. I looked in the tank yesterday and didn't see him in the usual place so I looked closer and saw his head peaking out from the polyps.
They don't seem to be irritated by him but I hope the big female doesn't try to host it as well. She would most likely kill the colony.
