I think that some people try to get into the heads of the fish we keep and try to reason out why certain behaviors do/don't take place. I have heard it all: Some say you should put a picture of a clown hosting an anenome next to the tank, others say to target feed the area that you want the clown to host.
I am a believer that the animals I put in my care will behave as the wish, and I have no reason personally to "train" a fish. I have been fortunate that my clowns hosted an anenome, but for a while they hosted a powerhead! If he is hosting now, he has the behavior
present, and that should be imprinted on him indefinitely.
