Well honestly it all depends on the fish. There are many people out there who have the right anemone and the right clownfish, and the clownfish would not want anything to do with thier anemone. There are not many anemones that stay small in size. Condys could work in your tank but they move ALOT, and because they are from the carribean they may eat your fish. I have heard of this happening. I have sceen oscellaris hoasting in mushrooms more than any other corals, i have even scene a maroon clown living in a giant maxima clam. But there is no real guarantee, they dont really need an anemone to survive. I cant really give a sure fire anemone for you because they will all eventually grow large.

a bulb tip ananomone.
I would not get one of these because I have one and when he is fully opened he is about 6-7" long and 8-9" wide. This type of anemone will also sting everything it touchs. I had to recently move my SPS corals around because my bubble tip decide to up and move on me and kept stinging all my SPS as it moved. I have two oscellaris clowns in my little 20 gallon that mad there home in a candy anemone that I never seen get to big they just like to move around.

TR if you keep ignoring the great advice you get this will then be my last reply.

Weld-On is the best acrylic glue. You can get it from any specialty plastic wholesaler listed in your local yelloow pages for about $10.

Your entire fish keeping list borders on criminal for that tank size.

I hate to be so blunt but you ignore great advice and sooner or later others will avoid your posts if you continue doing so. Put an eel in that tank and I guarantee it will climb out. Small anemones quickly get large. The only anemones you should be thinking about in a tank that size are flower anemones. Fish do not host to them. Now if you are an established reefer I would say that you could squeeze out a nice BTA, but you'd need to be willing to slice it in half once every few months.

Im sorry mike for making it seem like I dont care about the advice you guys give its just that I cant take all the advice you guys give me Its not that i dont agree a 20 gallon is too small for a eel its just that its my tank and I have the choice to put whatever i want in it. Heres what i meen.
You tell me not to put a eel in a 20 gallon i will listen to you, but this website says a can. Who do i belive?-me. I want a eel in a 20 gallon so i will belive this website.
Once again i will tell you i have no intentions of puting a eel in this tank. I do apreciate any advice given be anyone.

I do understand what you are saying, but you cant always listen to the web sites. They dont ALWAYS have the best information.
