 That  will  be  a  nice  set  up  for  a  clown  fish  tank,  but  do  a  little  more  study  on  the  anemones.  I  dont  think  a  real  expert  would  suggest  anemone  for  that  small  tank  and  that  early  in  the  set  up.  if  you  have  anemone  you'll  need  more  light  and  powerful  like  will  create  huge  temp  swing  for  such  a  small  tank  and  will  eventually  kill  the  anemone.  Also  if  your  anemone  starts  moving  around,  it  will  kill  your  corals.

 this  is  what  i  have  decided  for  tank  size  
 
 1.20x15x15
 
 
 know  i  am  confused  with  the  sump  part.  should  i  inbuilt  it  or  use  HOB  filter  and  HOB  skimmer  ?
 
 
 tank  volume  come  close  to  58.99liter  (after  sand,rocks  it  will  come  down)and  about  water  change  how  many  water  change  will  i  require  for  clown  fish  ?
 
 i  think  for  salt  mix  i  will  need  2kg  of  salt  for  my  tank  (1kg  for  30L)
 
 what  to  do  about  the  sump  part  ?  and  water  change

 Too  small  a  tank  really.  Do  try  for  something  like  thats  atleast  40  US  gallons  (150L).  It'll  render  more  stability  to  your  system  particularly  with  u  wanting  an  anemone.

 If  u  dont  want  a  sump  (highly  recommended)  you  can  get  a  Hang  on  Tank  Skimmer,  Reef  octupus  makes  nice  ones.

 You  dont  get  airstones  skimmers  in  Bombay  anymore.  and  they're  outdated  anyway.  I  would  highly  recommend  Azoo  skimmers.  forget  about  anemones  for  the  time  being.  You  need  a  lot  more  space  for  them  and  special  lighting  (which  means  more  money)  and  it  WILL  move  around  and  cause  havoc.  Nash81  is  an  experienced  hobbyist  so  he  can  pull  off  a  cube/nano  tank  but  since  it's  your  first  time  you  should  go  for  the  biggest  tank  (1.20x15x15  is  small)  you  can  afford.
 One  thing  you  should  do  is  make  a  list  of  equipment  you  need/want  and  personally  visit  LFS's  and  see  if  they  are  available  currently  because  in  Bombay  they  never  are.  Also  you  should  read  up  a  lot  more.
