NEW GSM clowns w/pics and question

Just got this new pair, they are both babies: female is 2 inches and the male is 1 inch. I love them. They seem to swim aimlessly though and I think they want an anemone, would one help settle them down? They are in a 12 gallon with 32 watts of PC and looking to upgrade the bulb a little bit. Heres a couple pics although my camera doesn't show their yellow enough:

they look great. they're prolly just checking out their new digs.

i'm pretty sure a 12g and 32w isnt enough for a bta...maybe a frogspawn or something similar?
(i'm pretty sure somebody will say 'no' to the euphylia too...)

i would suggest a leather. They will host leathers pretty readily, and those can be kept in lower light. toadstool?

also they dont need an anemone to be happy. I recently just added one to my tank with my GSM. they dont seem to care. they host the anemone, and every frogspawn in teh tank. they just go back and forth all day long.

did you enhance the color on those photos? the gold strips are very vibrant! they are great looking!! my pair is slightly larger then that and they are still getting there gold strips. i had my clowns with no anemone for about 2 months without any problems.
