You really want hot dipped galvanized chain for an anchor. Also, if you have a windlass, you need to get whatever chain the gypsy on it is designed for.
Do not use stainless steel anchor chain. Stainless steel is subject to crevice corrosion and other issues, and the welds on it can fail suddenly under load in a marine environment.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
