  1. here is a useful link http://fins.actwin.com/species/anemone.html it tells you about everything from the easy types to the most difficult how to feed etc anemones don't need clown fish to survive and thrive the same goes for clown fish majority of the time now alot of clown fish are captive bred and never seen an anemone in their life and wouldn't know what an anemone is there are lots of hobbyist that keep anemone only tanks but be forewarned do not mix different species of anemones if you decide to just keep anemones only as different species of anemones will sting each other it becomes a battle of dominance with 2 different anemones in a aquarium and believe me you don't want that cause if you have a well established system all it takes is one dead anemone to crash your whole system then you will have to start all over again. here is another link all the anemone keepers use this site she has alot of great info http://www.karensroseanemones.com/
  2. I agree with everything koko has said also depending on what size reef tank you plan on getting it may not hold the anemone very long as anemones can get very large esp the haddoni carpet they also require metal hailde lighting, and they can eat your fish. I say that if and when and your tank is stable after a year the best anemone to start out with would be rbta(rose bubble tip anemone)they only require t5ho this is a rbta http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2037/167549...6874d85.jpg?v=0 they can split too into clones and you tank might end up like this http://www.reefland.com/gallery/files/2/5/5/6/IMG_4988.JPG as for corals you can add them like 3-4 months but again it depends on what type of coral you want to do you have sps,lps,soft coral and zoanthids sps requires high lighting metal halide even though I have seen fellow reef hobbyist keep sps under under t5ho with out a problem but i think metal halide is actually better IMHO
  3. I painted my aquarium backs black I think it makes the color stand out on the fish I have never painted the bottom of my tanks though
