I woulod recommend and RBTA since some do not move around as often as others, I know for the most part as long as they have good flow and are being feed they will stay put unless stressed.

Hi. I wouldn't suggest putting in any nems with just a double bulb fixture. :-(

Also, my clowns hosted my elegance coral to an inch of the corals life, I had to give it away to save it.

Clowns don't always host, it's kind of hot or miss. Also, if i'm not mistaken you just recently set up your tank, and nems require an older more established tank.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Yeah i heard you have to wait at least 8 months up to a year before adding anemone to a new tank. For the benefit of their health.. Thats why i dont have any in my aquarium.. I really wanna see my clown play in it and feed it

Yes, you def need to wait till at least 8 months because there will be less parameter swings in your tank. Also you will need quite a bit more light 3-5 watts per gallon. The bubble tips are a little more hardy than the other anemones and look way better in my opinion. Be patient and educated
