is this a weird combo? my cinnamon clown is hosting in my green galaxia, i want to get him a anemone but thats not happening for another year. i was worried the galaxia would sting him, but theres absolutely no scars on him

Galaxia will only sting corals w/ its nematocysts. I've seen clowns host with just about everything under the sun. My tomato hosts w/ a feather duster. I've seen goniopora but that typically kills the goni over time as the clown irritates the polyps. Many LPS will "host" clowns but usually to the detriment of the LPS. Right now we have 2 black occelaris hosting w/ a scolymia.
So its not weird, just make sure its not irritating the polyps too much
