Hi! I am hoping to start a small 10 gallon saltwater tank. Id really like to have a bubble tip anemone and ocellaris clownfish. Would I be able to do that? How many? If not what kinds of animals could I have in there and how many? Thanks in advance!

Bubble tips shouldn't be housed in tanks this small. They get big and would eventually out grow the tank. I used to think it would be OK until Melev talked about it in depth during a live stream one day.
In terms of clowns, you would ideally want a pair in a 20 gallon. One solitary clown would be fine in a 10.

They just get big. They shouldn't be kept in such a small tank, though it is possible. There are anemone that can do well in them though, the mini maxi anemone are very popular.
