Is a 29 gal too small for an amemone?

Hey guys, Looking into getting an amemone and a clownfish for my tank soon just wondering if my tank is good enough size (29 gal + 2 gal fuge) before I decide which one. Also what a good one for a false or true perc.?

How full is the tank otherwise? And I assume you have enough lighting? Smaller species should work in a tank like that.

right now the tank is 45 lbs LR and 3.5" sand. No inhabitants yet, I moved some of the rock from my dads tank and some of the sand too, it went through a little cycle now I going to start stocking it. I have a 150 watt HQI MH and 2 x 65 watt actinic pc's.

What are the smaller species you're refering to?

Thanks, Brian

Like a Bubble/Bulb tip (BTA). A carpet/sebae would probably be too big. Unless of course it was an anemone show tank

well the bta's definitely look like a good choice to me, especially the rose bta. Would they host a true perc or an ocellaris clown?

You will want to be sure to get a wild-caught clown to ensure hosting. Most Tank-Raised Clowns (usually Ocellaris clowns) may or may not host. Although, Tank-Raised clowns usually do better in aquariums then wild caught do. ask your LFS before purchasing a clown.
