Bubble anemone...what light to use???!

Hi,

I have a small 25gal tank in my room and I was wondering how I should go about meeting the lighting requirements for a pink tipped bubble anemone (I was told they are the hardiest of all anemones).

I have a aluminium light unit with a reflector but the problem is that it can only hold one flurescent light tube. I heard that anemones like actinic lighting...Should I just go for a full actinic lighting (so my tank will be all blue lit) or can I get one of those full spectrum marine white light (like the Hagen Lights) and will that work to keep my anemone alive? Or do you suggest just sticking with a single actinic tube?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and thanks for your time.

I would get a new hood and fit it with a 175W 10000K MH.

Upgrading to MH would prob not be an option for me because of the cost and it would seem like overkill to have such a strong light and spend so much money just for an anemone...I do not intend to keep corals either.

I was told that around 2 watts per gallon is really enough and if you supplement it with feeding 3 times a week as well, they should be fine...any thoughts?
