Yep, looks good. the rockwork is nice, makes the tank full without making it seem crowded.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

You know there's no absolute guarantee that they will host right? I had one and it was more trouble than it was worth lol

What kind of light is it? Does it have individual reflectors? And what bulbs ya got? If it's a quality setup I don't see why not..

I don't think your lights are enough to maintain an anemone,best with MH's.Also to even have a shot your tank needs to be running and stable for at least a year.I agree with Carey,the worry of keeping one alive and it not nuking your tank when it dies is just not worth it,plus if your clowns end up hosting they will just stay with it all the time.
Most people will say I have one,had it a few months,very few will say I've had one for a year or more.

I know people who have anemones that split about once a year. The make sure they keep their light bulbs changed and feed them twice a week. I also know people that got an anemone and with in a week it went for a walk into their powerhead. I have several different types I have 3 maxi mini, a rock and a bubble tip, I got the bubble tip so my clown wouldn't kill the coral that it decided to host. I have also doubled my water changes from one a week to twice a week in the tank with the bubble tip. I also change my bulbs every 6 months instead of every 12.

Ya after much thought I've decided not to get a anemone. I wasn't planning on getting one anytime soon anyway just was doing reseach.
