It depends how big the tank is. I don't think that's enough though

How big is this tank again? I don't think a 2 bulb fixture is bright enough light for a nem....

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Ok so a little update on the hosting and hair algae, I picked up a couple cuc members today and dripped them and added them about an hour ago I got another emerald crab, two Mexican turbos and 2 regular turbos and an algae blenny, everything seems fine but the clowns are kinda thrashing their tails and the algae blenny when he tries munching on the hair algae, like they're are being defensive of the algae which they have recently hosted last weekend, is this going to be a problem resulting in the blenny not getting enough food?

Hey if you want to have the look of a nem but don't have the lighting for it yet, go to the dollar store and buy a tentacle sponge ball. They come in different colors and for a buck if they don't host its no big deal. Theres a YouTube video of some clowns hosting one. I would post it but I'm on my phone
