planning a saltwater tank, i need all the information
 
I will be planning to get a 20 gallon saltwater tank that will house 2 tank bred oscelaris clownfish. I will plan on getting an atlantic anemone. I need all the information i can get about saltwater because i know very little about it. Please give me some tips, i dont mind doing lots of diy stuff to save money as well so if you have diy tips go ahead and say so

I asked them and they all said there is no anenamone that will fit in a 20 gallon tank(i asked them if i could put one in my 20 gallon) they said all the anenamones would grow tooo big. but then mike said you can keep an anenamone in a 20 gallon cube aquarium.

You Can Get a Corn or Pink tip Anenome.

Yes all anemones will get to big for a 20, but if any anemone I would prefer would be this one:

I have had one in a 20 for 6 months now and have two clowns that host in it. NOw wait dont rush off and get on with a clown becuase it is RARE that any type of clown will host in it. And they move alot. Mine hasn't moved ever and I hope it stays like that.
