Anemone in nano cube?

I went to my fathers friends house today and fell in love with a clown hosting an bubble tip anemone and I was just wondering who has anenome in there nano tanks. And I'm looking at getting 2 true percs for my nano tank and am wondering if any what kind of anemone they would host. Any help would be great.

anemones are not the easiest to keep. whats worse is when they die it contaminates your system and it can get ugly. not only that but with percs theres no guarantee that they will take to the host. id say start here and get as much out of this as possible, it will give you clown/host compatability, care, etc

Clowns will also host in a bunch of other stuff as wel, l i have seen many threads on here where they host in coral and stuff that almost resemble anemones, check these out :)

You are just asking to get flamed big time for that question, but the answer is no, with the possible exception of a rose anemone.

lol i've been told many times before, and I keep forgetting that i'm going to go with anenome looking corals in hopes they host that. Does anyone have any suggestions on soft wavey corals that someone look like anenomes?? Thanks..

yes, torches almost look exactly like nems if you cant see their skeletons

 

ive heard green hairy shrooms make great hosts as well; they're more like a capet anemone

I decided to try keeping a rose BTA. So far, so good... it's only been 2 weeks though. We'll see what the next months bring.

My little clown is obsessed with my frogspawn. He spends all night rubbing around in it. So far the coral doesn't seem to mind.

My LFS has a rose in a stock nano 12, 2 years looks great and has split about 5 times, its all stock too...so i guess it depends on the specimen, but it is possible

I actually have a beautiful bubbletip anemone but my perc hosts my hairy shrooms instead - go figure. Incidently, you can keep an anemone in a nano (12 gal min IMO) if you know exactly what you're doing. It isn't really difficult if you stay on top of things, however, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone but an experienced reefer.
