    Depending on what type of anemones do you have. And if you are running carbon or not. In that small tank you most likely will have chemical warfare between the two anemones unless they are sisters.

    Also what lightning do you use? And powerheads, how much flow does your tank have.

    Running carbon would help. Both anemones would be better.

    depends entirely on you, and your lights and flow, i LOVE lps, so i keep only LPS ad some softies. so i would say frogspwan, hammer, ricordea,bubble, maybe some brain corals, donut...these all can add awesome colour.

    To add to the list, you could look at blastomussa, candy cane, favia and plating montipora.

    Just google or do a search first of compatible coral before you buy... I lost quite a few coral in the beginning stages because not all coral like each other nor do they like the same flow or water conditions...
