My clowns wont host the anemone

Hi there, I have a pair of black and white clown and a rose bubble tip anemone. I cant seem to get them to host it, they located themselves in a corner at the back and cant seem to change their mind. I trued the picture method but with no success.

Have any advice?

First of, the anemone hosts the clownfish and not the other way around.
Second, it's kind of the wrong anemone for that species. The only anemone I have seen them in on pictures from the wild is S. gigantea. However, I have a pair that took a S. haddoni as host. But those had been in a coral before and seem to be more or less willing to accept everything.
Often it just takes time for them to accept a non-natural host so I would just wait and see.
