How many anemones in a 40g?

I won't be setting up a tank for YEARS, but when I do, I'd love anemones and clowns. I know a tank needs to be very mature and also that anemones are not beginner inverts for saltwater. I just want to know if you could have two bubble tip anemones in a 40g, because I would like two different colors. If it's not really possible I'll move on.

You can easily have two of the same anemone in a tank that size.

You'll eventually have way more than 2 as they do split. Like Hank said they get along fine

I did not expect such positive responses. Cool, thanks guys! Other advice appreciated. Oh, what would be a safe clean up crew for just clowns and anemones?

1-2. Anemones can grow very large so be sure to really research for your best options.
