Tape a picture of Clowns hosting a Anemone to the side of the tank, this has been known to help.

What a great Idea. I (ok, my wife) just printed them. I'll let you know if it works.

My only guess on this is let nature take its course. It may/may not happen. If it was tank bred, it may have never been taught by the parents (read that somewhere) to learn this instinct. While RM's suggestion sounds funny, it's probably a nice safe way to try (can;t hurt anythign and it's been posted in other places). Any other measure may could just induce unwanted stress which I'm sure you don't want.

I've read of people feeding their clowns over/in the target anemone to initiate contact.
I guess that once the fish get in there instinct takes over.

No luck yet. But they do snuggle up to the pictures now and then. I guess they're happy.

They'll get it. Just gotta give them some time.
