You don't have enough light, I wouldn't buy one if I were you. Anemones have a huge appeal, but they can also destroy tanks if they walk over your corals or die.

Well, I had almost 5 watts per gallon (2x96w pc's over a 40gallon breeder) and my anemone quickly died, as far as I can tell, due to not enough light.

For something like a BTA, you want at least 4wpg...lower end reef lighting, basically.
