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.

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.
