It may never happen. Percs and occelaris may not actually host at all. Depends upon whether they are tank bred or wild caught. The tank bred ones seem so far removed that they don't have the natural instinct. My maroons look at the bag of anemone as I hold it up. They stake it out before it gets to the tank... If your clowns don't get "it", try taping a really nice clean picture from a magazine of a clown hosting to an anemone. For some reason this seems to work wonders.
