Add a few more pounds of live rocks and get a powerhead or circulation pump. Dont get anomone until you are comfortable with basic saltwater care.

Please look into skimmers. There are HOB skimmers if you cannot get a sump.

are you already cycled? whats your filtration? what type of tank will this be (reef, fowlr, seahorse..)?

i really dont think you should have a anemone until at least a year. within a year all of your parameters should be stable and you will be familiar with everything you need to do. why do you want an anemone? if it is for a clown, i wouldnt get it and instead i would get a coral. they can host corals that look like anemones.

cant wait to see how this turns out! good luck

Anenome are get very large and don't he restricted growth traits if in a small tank I would advise against anemones in small tanks unless you are going to upgrade in future
