They vary with different clowns. Although some will host a different type. They can also go to corals instead of Nems. My clowns hosted my hammer coral as soon as they went in the tank. Go to the live aquaria site that someone suggested. It's got lists of reef safe fish and their tank size requirements.

Edit: Oh and clownfish do not need an anemone to thrive and reproduce.

Okay so I'm doing a 75 instead of a 55. And instant ocean makes a skimmer.. It's in my price range but idk if i should get that or save a little more and get a good one from my LFS. And what's the difference between a hydrometer and a refractometer... ?

I have a reef octopus bh1000 on my 55 that is going on my 75 in 2 weeks. You can find them for about 175-190 online. Awesome HOB skimmer.

If you are keeping corals, skip the marineland "reef capable" lights. They are not reef capable. Look into leds on e-bay. About $160 each.
