Well, the best option would be a bubble tip but honestly there is no anemone that is really recommended to try in under a 30 gallon aquarium. Nems are just so sensitive to changes in water conditions and it is hard to keep conditions stable with such a small amount of water. I'm sure someone has done it but that doesn't mean its easy. I would be afraid in such a small tank the clowns might be even more prone to snuggle the nem to death. :( That is of course if the clowns decided to host at all.

All of the host species are capable of out growing a 10gl. If you want to see the hosting behavior, you can try some hairy shrooms. They get pretty big and it's not uncommon for clowns to use them as a host. They will do fine in a 10gl tank. They also closely resemble sea anemones.
Here's an example of what I'm talking about.
