You could do a maroon clown. Those get like 4-6 inches I think.

The anemone actually hosts the clown and yes they do. People usually have bubble tips and most clowns will go to them. It may just take a while. However you need very intense lights and a tank that is at least a year old

Now I've had a purple tipped anemone before but my star fish ate it few days ago(was super mad) but the only fish I've ever had in my tank were damsels and one of my damsels acted like a clown fish to the Nem and would hide and bring food and small rocks to the Nem

Stop jokeing around guys, a snowflake gets 2/3s the size of the tank. Engineer goby would be the best choice. If you get a snowflake it will die of stress. Dont do it. First of all Get a skimmer before you get anything else.

Also your nem didnt get eaten it died first and then was eaten, you got it in the first month the tank had been up and are using T8s right? Thats why it died. Unless your gonna upgrade lights dont get another one.
