tomato clown hosting

I have a vibrant torch coral. My tomato clown hangs around it but never really host in it. It use to host in my candy coral but stopped. My question is? Do clowns host torch corals?

hit or miss, as many types of corals will serve as hosts for clowns. kind of an individual choice thing. since the torch has long sweepers, kinda like an anemone, its a possibility - mine loved the Euphylia ancora for the same reason, I think. but I've seen them hosted by leather corals, mushrooms, ricordia, you name it. [call me a grammar nazi, but its the coral/anemone that hosts the fish, not the other way around ]

How true, and technically they are anemone fish not clown fish except the A. percula and A. ocellaris.
