The brain will more than likely get use to it. The clowns will do some crazy things. (http://thereeftank.com/forums/showthread.php?t=97859)

Maybe he's hosting there because he wanted a bigger brain?

Shouldn't hurt the brain at all. I have 4 Clarkii clownfish that I put in my tank as babies and 2 of them made my Wellsi and Scoly brains their homes for along time. One still likes the Scoly brain, but the other has moved his residence to the frilly/hairy mushrooms.

My saddleback hosts my Red Lobo. I have read that clowns won't hurt the corals they nest in. I have to agree with this even though I don't totally love the thought of him rolling around in my Lobo.
