A nano tank that small is not going to be big enough for an anemone. You may be able to get by with some softies in a tank that small.

I agree no way could you fit an anemone in their it would get too big. You could put some zoas, xenia, or mushrooms.

I don't think anemone size is the real issue here. In a tank that small, water parameters will fluctuate too rapidly for an anemone. very delicate animals. For a tank that small, I'd stick with super hardy soft corals like mushrooms, zoas, kenya tree, maybe leather. You'll need to frag often.
