Bubble tip anemone

I have a 55g with a dual bulb t5. One daylight and one acnitic. Is this enough light for a bubble tip anenome (not the red kind). The tank is 18 inches deep.

No it isn't. I wouldn't attempt in less than 4 bulb, though I was not successful in keeping one personally under 4 it wasn't the best unit in the world.

I think you should run at least 4xT5HO...

Or maybe a good LED lighting system.

Would a BTA be ok under a 120-165W Dimmable LED? Those aren't too expensive and I just love mine. Plus the bonus of never changing the bulbs.

Yeah, those will let you keep anything photosynthetic under them and what are pretty commonly suggested around here when it comes to budget tanks.

Just take your time acclimating them. Anemones can be slow to accept the strong light they offer.
