My favorite clowns are probably chrysopterus but they are also the largest of the clown species. Skunks look really good in a nice crispa. I'd also consider a pair of nigripes (also skunk complex) in a ritteri.

The problem you're going to have is that your 26 is a little small for most anemones in the long run. You'll have to either decide to frag or trade in a couple years. I'd also recommend setting up a good sump to provide a bit of extra volume to keep the water more stable.

Agreed, a 26 gallon is a little to small for any anemone at that. I like the Sebaes and the skunks but thats my opinion.
