anemone?

So my room mate and I had a 10 gal tank given to us by one of our good buds. His wife said the 10 gal tank had to go since he now has a 75 gal tank going strong.

The tank came to us with two condalictus(sp) anemonies in it, an erchine, and a snail.

About 3 days ago I bought a osclaris clown fish to go with it. I knew that he would not host with our condalictus. So my question is can I take the anemonies that we have to a fish store and like sell them back/give them to them and get a stichodactyla gigantea or something simular that my clown fish will host.

I have heard that anemenies are not good fish for amatures so should we stick with the ones we have and dont bother?

And what other equipment do we need? We have the tank, a heater and themomoter, and a filter. Do we need a protein skimmer? or anything else?

condy are fine for beg. look to left, the picture is when i was begginer. just keep up with tank. how much light is getting? If not much target feed it. a skimmer is up to you it well help with water changes. buy a test kit if you dont have one. keep the params right and it shoould look nice. but as for the other anemonies just wait on those. But if you do want to get rid of them lfs will usually take them.

So good luck and Welcome to Aquarium Advice.

It has a good amount of light getting in. The light was for a 10 gal coral tank. But it is about 6mo old so we have been advised it needs replaced.

buy a new hood and get the screw in pc bulbs that are 50/50 30 watts. and that should be good in a small tank. im guessing you only have a flourensent tube.

And I was doing more research and it says that a single clown fish needs 30gal of water? So is my 10 going to kill him when he is grown? Or is their a way around it?

basically what you have right now is nano tank. there smaller and a lot harder to keep control of. A bigger tank would be nicer to start you off but it sound like its kinda of mature. are there any live rocks in there. And on the clownfish note youll be okay with it. but rember that having a smaller tank you going to have more water changes. what type of clown do you have.
