can i get an anemone

alright i have been told that i should not get an anemone for my tank its a 36 gal with about 30 pounds of live rock ( 3 big pieces) have no livestock in the tank besides 10 small hermits. planned on gettng 2 clowns real soon and wanted an anemone for them but was told by a friend my tank is too small

96W 50\50 pc light

just looking for a less aggresive anemone and one that stay relitively small due to the fact i will have other corals.
idealy i just want something for my clowns.

I`m not saying dont get one but two things I need to let you know. One, they need a mature and well established tank. Maybe around 9-12 months. The worst thing that you can have for an anenome is a new tank with the water parameters bouncing around. Two, there is no guarantee that the clowns will host with the anenome. I had two that totally ignored my anenome for other corals. I have known others that have had the same thing happen to them so there is no guarantee.

Mine now take up residence in my hammer corals. Their anemone died after 3 years. I will not get another one. That one was taking over the right side of my tank (125 gallon) and was over a foot around when open.
