To be honest you really dont have to have one. They will host other corals and equipment also. They need to be in a very stable tank that is at least a yr old IMO. Good starting anenomes are IMO bubble tip anenomes. You`ll probably need at least T5HO lighting. They dont need to be fed as your clowns will bring them pieces of food. Just hope they dont get their feeding by stinging one of your fish and devouring it.

The clowns are the host. The coral or anenome are the living area. What difference does it make. We all know what is meant.

Any other suggestions for a newbie. Do the have to be placed on a rock or can they sit on the sand? Also will they move to a place there happy in a tank.

it will move all over the tank trying to find a favorite spot. it will have no regard for any corals you have so be prepared to move some thing around.
