I want to setup an aquarium like this
I would like to setup a new salt water aquarium with a clownfish and an anemone. But I was told that the anemone requires high water quality and, if it died, it releases toxin that would kill everything. What is the minimum size of tank in order to keep good water quality to keep the anemone from releasing toxin to ruin my tank?

I can depend on the type of clown fish you want. Not all clown fish will host in all anemones. Tank sizes would range from around 50 gallons to 90 gallons depending on the combination
The below thread can help you decide
As you stated, anemones need near prefect water conditions. So what ever you decide, I would recommend taking your time and reseaching first.
I hope this helpsIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

If you run Carbon in your system 24-7 you will not have an issue with any toxins in the water released by anyone. And not only do they need Prestine water conditions, most need very high lighting to thrive.
