    Almost anything, does not have to be a poor nennie.
    Only get a nennie if your tank has sufficient light, etc.

    Well most LPS cannot handle clowns hosting in them. Some tolerate it but it's not something i'd want to risk. If you want clowns hosting get an anemone if your lighting is sufficient, else go for some softies like colt's etc.

    BubbleTips are probably the easiest to keep if your wanting an anenome. 2X (1 Blue and 1 White) 54w bulbs will do (Youle find that will even be a bit bright for the nennie the first few weeks, making it retract or hide under ledges). 2X feeding per week and a SG of about 1.025. Thats about it.
