Either way, I would recommend taking your time. Both SPS and anemones need a mature tank. Me personally, I will say go SPS, probably because I love SPS, LOL!!!

But anemones are SO cool, and I can not lie. :)

I had a JBJ 45 and it was my first tank. I didn’t do SPS for a while because I was intimidated by what I had read about them not being good for beginners. After putting a few in I kinda wished I had done mostly just SPS from the start. So I guess that would be my vote.

I don't see why you can't do both. 9 months to a year is a long time to wait on corals before getting an anemone
True! My 24 nano is 3 years old with 2 RBTA and mandarin with plenty of pods. I transferred a few LR from there to help with cycling. Yes, I’m waiting also added to jbj two pouches with a few months old marine bio balls hoping to help cycle a bit faster. Will be checking chemistry often
