Need to do your research on aneomones, bubble tips seem to be one of the easier ones to keep but theres things to watch out for like covering powerheads & possibly stinging any corals in its hunt to find a good spot?? You need proper lighting also

Dude bubble tips so easy.. Everyone is so pedantic on the light... I agree they need light by not heaps some times too much decreases there life time I've had mine for well over a year... Go for it! Everyone is so worried about you killing them bit aquariums and **** are all mini experiments and u learn from them... If u have sufficient lighting I would say go for it... U got clowns?

I'll second bubbletips as a good clown host that is pretty easy and add on long tentacles as well. Here's mine:

clownfish are no indication you need or will be able to keep anemones. neither is coralline algae.
