I blew it my first want it to go better

So I got a condelactis anemone a week ago from this past Sunday I didn't have enough lighting and unfortunately it died so I got more lighting which adds more day light during the night and looks pretty cool but my question is will a orange Florida ricordia be ok for my tank it is a soft coral and on this website says low to moderate lighting so will it work

If you want something that flows with the current get a hammer or torch coral! They are hardy, do well in medium light and look fantastic swaying back and forth in the water!

There is no guarantee clowns will host anything. Heck I've seen clowns host clams and zoanthids before a nem. But I agree ricordeas are good as well as any euphyllia corals

According to liveaquaria.com "Unlike other anemones, the Condy Anemone does not have a relationship with any particular fish, and it is rare for any type of clownfish or damsel to reside within them." I do have a pair of Pearl Eye Clarkie's that host my Condy but it took several months.
