If your signature line reflects the fish you have in the 28g, in my opinion, you're at your limit on fish already... if not a little over it.

That is pretty much the same answer I was going to give.

I really think you should sit back and let your tank be for a while. Adding more and more stuff is just going to create issues. Let things be right now.

The anemone being white is a sign of stress or illness and could lead to death. Not a good thing.

well back to other stuff, i have noticed that for about an inch above the sand there are green algae specks everywhere and i cant get them with a mag or the sponge on a stick thing. how should i go about removing this? so wait on the anemone, how bout a clam? wait another month or 2? i dont think ill get anything except a few mushrooms next time i go to the lfs cuz i dont really know what to get next. other than coral. im putting a vid of the tank on youtube rite now btw.

Is this a glass nano or acrylic? I use a razor blade to remove the "green" when I am working in the tank. It usually appears in the areas I can't get my magnet cleaner to work. Along the sand bed and in the corners of the tank.

I would wait on adding anything other then corals.

As your tank ages the system will become more and more stable. You will also learn how to handle and maintain the tank. Anemones depend on near perfect water conditions and excellent lighting. They will not be happy in a new system. Time and time again I read posts where people have put them in 3 week old tanks only to have to fish them out after about a week be cause they are dead.

Almost all inverts require pristine water conditions. Let your system age and you will not have any issues.
