What anenomes are suitable for someone with little saltwater experience (me).
What size tank? Anenome's are really tough to keep in tanks that haven't been established a long time or someone with beginner SW experience. They require very specific lighting, temperature, salinity, and other important SW metrics. I believe rock flower anemones are easier than your Magnificent or Carpet Sea anemones you see paired with clownfish.
Someone with more saltwater experience might be able to help you out. But I just wanted to share what limited knowledge I do know about them in the meantime! Maybe starting with a coral that is a bit more forgiving such as zoanthids or green star polyps?
Well maybe I'll get clownfish or maybe I won't, but I'm not really all about the clownfish but rather just the anenome itself. If I get an anenome does it need a clownfish or will it do a lot better with a clownfish?I'm not saying don't get one, just saying you need to be aware that it's not just as simple as throwing one in and seeing a cool symbiotic relationship with a clownfish and a lot of planning and forethought needs to go into it before purchasing one.
