    is it possible to put a carpet anemone in a 24 g JBJ nano cube deluxe and have it survive. cause i dont know how much light they need.

    NO, carpet anemones need much bigger tanks

    As a matter of fact, if you look up carpets on this site they list a minimum tank size of 150g

    +2. Carpets get big and mean. They also require more lighting than a BTA would.

    thanks demartini, that one is really cool. is there any other types of anemones that i could keep in the nano cube cause i know that most need really powerful light.

    I agree, Stichodactyla tapetum is a Carpet Anemone suitable for Nano tanks.

    The clowns will choose really anything to swim in. Clowns are just as likely to host a frogspawn as an anemone... Mine looooove frogspawn!
    if you really have your heart set on an anemone and your lights are good enough then you can try a bubble tip anemone.
