How long has the tank been up and running? And do you have a pic of the tank? Also what are your water parameters?

Multiple pairs of clowns is a bad idea. With 3 or more clowns only 2 will pair up and the 3rd wheels will be bullied to death. Some have kept multiple pairs, but its the exception not the rule.

Nems need a tank that's been running about a year or so. The clowns also aren't guaranteed to host it either.

Your lighting should suffice for maintaining certain species of anemones. Remember however that lighting represents just a small part of the equation in maintaining a successful marine aquarium. Water parameters, filtration, water flow, diet, health of the individual when purchased, other tank mates and proper husbandry standards have to be taken into consideration along with light for optimum results.
There are no guarantees that an Anemone and Clown (Percula or Oscillaris) will pair up an the species of both Clown and Anemone being added makes a difference in whether the Anemone hosts a Clownfish.
I would stay away from Haitian Anemones, Carpets, Sebae Anemone and the Heteractis species and pursue the Bubble tip(Entacmaea)or Pacific Long Tentacle Anemone(Macrodactyla) instead.
Anemonefish will often times host other animals like a Tridacna Clams mantle(my Clown did that), corals such as Xenia, Star Polyps, Frogspawn, Clove Polyps and Zoanthids, especially.

Like BallinCrew said multiple clowns (more than 2 or 2 dif species) in the same tank is a bad idea. They will more than likely kill each other. So pick 2 that you like and sell the rest.

They are all roughly 3-4 yrs old and seem to be getting a long. Even during feeding. They are all percs. Here are some pics of their future home.
