What do you mean by "good"? Anemones are difficult creatures to care for. They require strong lighting and pristine water condition. By pristine I mean 0 phosphates, 0 nitrates, 0 ammonia.. Also, you tank seems to be too young for an anemone. When i first started saltwater I bought myself a Haitian anemone, my tank was about 5-6 months old and I had trouble keeping him.

I definitely agree with Massimo...you should do a LOT of research before adding any kind of marine life to a tank. I haven't even set up my tank yet but even i know that. You can't rush things...no matter what is advertised as "add fish now" or "no cycling time, just add fish" thats a bunch of "abalone". i too would like a Bubble Tip eventually...but like people said, tank maturity is important. Also, never be negligent to an animals care level, especially when it's more for Experts or Moderate, and think you can handle it. Just sayin because most people learn all this the hard way. i know I have...

A reef system is not mature or stable at 2-3 months and as such is unsuitable to house anemones or other sensitive inverts. There is a reason why experienced hobbyists tell people to wait at least 6 months and preferably a year. Can it be done? Sure! Just about anything can in this hobby. It doesn't make it a good idea.
