I think that might be a little too small. Also, if you had any problems in your water it would foul that tank and possibly wipe out everything. You might be able to get a Curly-Cue Anemone, but I am not sure how big they get. A lot of them like to have at least 30G. Hopefully some one can come along and correct me if I am wrong.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Curly-Cues get HUGE if you give them space, so I wouldn't recommend that. Also, if you have other livestock in the 6 gallon already, you might want to find something else besides an anemone. If anenomes die they can easily cause a tank to crash, especially if its a little one like yours. Just my opinion.

Sorry, I think a 6 gal is a bit too small for any anemone. However, there are many coral frag options that look similar. Check out a small torch coral or hammer coral. I have both in my 12gal nano and they look great.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
