Anemone Keeping

I was wondering how difficult it is to keep sea anemones. The anemone that I was going to get is the Pink Tipped Anemone that is only about $9.99. The lighting in my tank is a Coral Life compact fluorescent bulb with the 10,000k saltwater bulb installed. It is a 65 watt set on a 35 gallon tank giving more that 2 watts per gallon? Would the anemone live in that?

IMO No..... Anemones are delicate creatures that should only be kept in a mature tank with proper lighting.

2 watts/gal is not enough light to keep an anenome. I would not try.
