Check my signature for my corals. They are easy ones but I think they look great. I have the coralife 2x65(1 white and 1 actintic) lunar aqualight.

Hmm...if you really want to keep an anemone, I'd probably opt for either a 150wHQI or a 175w mogul base MH with actinics. Check with reefrunner on this as well...he has a 20g with, if I remember correctly, a 250w MH fixture. You won't light it too much. I would think the 2x65 PC would be the absolute minimum you'd want to have. JMHO.
