Not to sway you from from your anemone choices, but some people find them very hard to keep. LPS branching corals can get you *close* to the same look and most LPS corals are fairly hardy. Look into something like the torch coral, frogspawn, hammer, etc.

Again, no guarantee a clown will host any of these, but clowns can also host these corals.

Best of luck with the tank.

It depends on your inhabitants. Some fish like to have lots of room to swim. I have hear 1 inch per 5Gallons, but again, it depends on what fish you will be stocking.... Personally I like to tell folks, here and see what their advice/experiences are and if I have anymore room.

I will be checking ebay for all of my supplies including the tank itself, I have seen many tanks over 100 gallons for less than $150 that includes alot of the suplies I need. Once I have a better idea of how many gallons I will have I will come back to get help sytarting at the very begining with the cycle, since it is a bit different than FW, I wanna make sure I do everything right to keep from having any problems.
