I would consider stronger lighting for a BTA and most other Anemones. I would go with the pc/MH combo for lighting. Do it right the first time and save lots of money. I would have if I knew this way back when.

Not really enough light for an anemone to thrive. You could do it but you would have to feed them frequently.It would just take a lotl of dedication on your part. The BTA is however one of the less light requiring anemones availible. To do anemones i would step up to Metal Halide if you can.

I keep BTA's under 260 watts of PC lighting and have had great success. When I first got mine, it was only about 2 in across, now it is about 8in and has split once (I just moved one to my new nano). I do not target feed my anenomes, they get what they get at feeding time. Granted, my large ine in my 72 gal. has found a happy spot toward the top and I do not use a glass top, but my anenomes have thrived and grown nicely under my CF lighting. Keep in mind I would not try a long tent, seabea or carpet under the lighting I currently have. IMHO, a BTA will do just fine in your tank...Lando
