Good Clownfish Anemone

I have a 100 gallon tank and wanted to get 4 Ocellaris Clownfish. I also wanted to get an anemone for them. Is there one that wont get to big for my tank that the Ocellaris like? Any advice would be appreciated.

I know it will get big but I know some can get a few feet across and that is way to big for my tank. Thanks I will do some research on it.

I have a purple tipped Malu that was 4 to 5 inches ID when I got it and after 2 years it's grown to nearly 20 inches so I hear ya, most of it's growth is due to my clown feeding it half of what I fed her so go figure. If I were to do it again I would do so more research myself. Just remember that your anemone should always have a host clown if not dumb fish get accedently get eaten by it, especially carpets.
