Anemone Suggestions

I have a 35 gallon and I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on some anemone that you like that look good. Would be my first anemone ever so I'll the floor open for any suggestions.
Looking to buy a clown pair to host them.

Bubble Tip's are very pretty and will do well in that size aquarium.

I like my Giant Carpet, but after only 6 weeks it has doubled in size and is now almost 10 inches across and I imagine will get much larger.

Avoid condy, they don't host clowns and get big. Bubble tip would be my suggestion...

I've read that Sebae's are good and i don't know about hosting but mini carpet nems i found were really awesome looking. I'm worried about corals like that growing to large.

Just so you know your clownfish may never host an anemone so don't e disappointed if that happens! Although the bubble tip is not the natural host nem for a clown they can and do. They are also I think the safest first nem to get. May I ask how old the tank is and what kind of lighting you have? Just to be sure you can actually house one properly

Sebae are beautiful, but can be difficult to keep. Mini carpets are very colorful but have nothing to do with hosting behavior with clowns. As an fyi, anemone are inverts that lack a brain and are not corals though they have similar requirements to small polyp stony corals, high lighting and pristine water conditions.

Bubble tips get quite large and I'm worried that it would be a main center piece. i dont believe my tank is mature enough i've read that about 6 months to a year. My tank has been up only about 4 months. For my lighting i have a dimmable 120 watt led.

If that is the taotronics unit it'll be fine. Bta can get large, but it takes time. You're right you should wait 6 months for things to stabilize.

He probably won't like the frogspawn, but mine love to host in plain old waving hand coral.
