Clarkii and Anemone?

how can I make my Clarkii's enter the anemone? soon I'll upload a picture of the Clarkii's and the Anemone. Does the anemone has to be big or it doesnt matter?

You can't make the Clarkii host. It will either take to the anemone, or it won't. Just be patient. It really does not matter how large the anemone is.

More important, what level of experience do you have in caring for anemones? These are among the most difficult of all animals to keep in captivity. Tell us about your setup and we will be happy to assist.

again anemones of all types are very hard to care for. all inverts for that matter are sensitive. the clowns also will host it if thats what they want to host. realisticly anything they feel safe/comfort in is what they host.
from the pictures it looks like you need more live rock. what lights are you using? skimmer? what are your alk, mag, ca, ph, nitrate,nitrite,ammonia readings?

i suggest not feeding frozen shrimp or atleast chopping it up into small pieces first. alittle goes a long way. large chunks or large quantities can cause the nem to use more energy digesting it then it actually gets from the food.
