I would say skip the anemones for now. It's not even guaranteed that the clowns will host the anemones. It's another hit or miss. Also, the nems require a very mature tank with the least amount of water fluctuations possible. I would say leave the nems alone until your tank is at least 8 months mature. And since its a hit or miss.. any nems will do. the GSP's are good coral to start with.. but beware that they are the weeds of the ocean. They grow rapidly on anything they can grab on to.. and are very hardy.

Oh.. hmm.. were you talking about green spotted puffers? or green star polyps?? heh, my bad if you were talking about the puffers. As for the coral.. you can just frag them.. or cut them in half or something. Just trim them down basically. Or just get another coral to sting them to death for you.. xD

The green star polyps are awesome. I'm loving them. All I did to frag them was cut anything hanging off it, and toss it in the 10, they've already started growing on the rocks.

It's pretty impressive how fast they grow.

The yellow button polyps are cool as well. Well, the GSP's grow with a sortof mat thing attached to them. Its purple and its connected to everything that the polyps are connected to. If you just slice through the purple part and separate it, then it will start to regrow wherever you put it. Or.. die if you want to just kill in and throw it away.. but i dont know why you would want to do that. You could just frag it and give it to your LFS or someone else you know with a SW tank or something. Idk.. but the choice is yours. I love the GSP's personally, but just be aware that they do grow pretty darn fast.. and everywhere they can grab on to.

could not have said it any better. Wait at least a year. The clowns dont have to have one and there is no guarantee.
