Clownfish and anemone with water changes

If I had a male and female clownfish, would it be worth it to get one anemone? So they could either breed or hide i don't really know. And could I get away with monthly water changes?

Anemones are nice for some clown fish, they might actually host it, or not, depends on the clowns.

I do monthly water changes and I find my water parameters are not that great in those tanks. Every two weeks would be my recommendation at the very minimum. I used to keep up with weekly water changes but that was getting tedious and expensive as i change out over 100g every time I change the water. lol

180g Reef - 60g Rimless Reef -90G FOWLR- 125g Malawi Cichlids- 40b REEF- 34g Fresh Planted-working on- 20L FOWLR- working on
I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Too add to what carey said, for the best results look up what type of clowns you have as different clowns naturally host different nems... not a guarantee they will take to it but a better chance... also if your clowns are big get a bigger nem.. the clowns can stress out a nem and beat it up if its too small.
