    Congrats, sounds wonderful.

    Go with the LTA. Carpets are my favorite but they come with a ton of risk, they get huge and they are fish eaters. You'll be putting any fish other then a clown at risk putting it in a smaller tank with a carpet. Leave your options open for other fish types.

    one thing to keep in mind - maroons are vicious - especially the gold striped. If you go with that type, you'll be limited on any future fish additions. They are beautiful though so I totally understand your attraction to them.

    If you go with a carpet anemone, clowns and domino damsels might reside in the carpet. Other fish will have to give the carpet a wide berth which is hard in a smaller tank. All another fish has to do is lightly touch the anemone and that fish is dinner.
