They may, this is a very difficult animal to care for though they need very strong light and strong flow. How old is your tank and what lighting are you using?

7 months old. Double bright marineland led. I'm not setup for this type of anemone. I'm not going to buy it.

I have a gold stripe maroon clownfish and would like to try to get an anemone to host. Recommendation?

Don't buy that nem. If you want a nem upgrade your lights. That ritteri nem wouldn't last a day under those lights. Once you upgrade go for a bubble tip.

+1. BTA's are the hardiest IME. The taotronics LEDs in eBay will allow you to keep whatever you want for a very reasonable price
