you can do an anemone there are so many kinds when you do get one you need to make sure you have at least 5 watts of light per gal of water. a great anemone for that list would be a carpet, bubble or tentical happy fishing

Its gonna be a FOWLR to start, but it will have lighting to support corals just incase i decide to go that route plus it makes the fish look better. Sorry i dont know much about lighting yet

no prob for lighting i would go t-5ho or metal halide thats your best bet. just make sure that what ever anemone you decide to get will be compatible for your tank, because there are some that will eat your fish.

I'd also make sure that whatever anemone you get, that your hermits aren't natural predators of anemones. I know red legged hermits eat them so you may want to check on your specific hermit species to make sure that they don't have a taste for nems.

IMO anemones should be left in the ocean where they can live their full lives (30 years??). That is way beyond the life of any tank that we have.

Too many of these creatures die due to poor lighting, poor water quality, overfeeding, underfeeding, etc. that the few that live 5+ years in a tank don't justify the trade.

Now for those who have had a reef tank for 5 years and already know how to keep very stable water parameters I may understand getting one and fragging it for sale/trade. At least that helps to leave the wild population intact. But until there is sufficient quantites of fragged anemones for sale, please think again about getting one. Clown fish don't need one. They move around and kill other corals trying to find a 'happy place'. They die all too soon and suddenly, though most waste away for a period of months till they show signs of it (at which point it's too late to help).
