Enough light for coraline and future anemone?

Is 3 watts/gallon enough for some anemone and decent coraline growth? I was planning on getting the current usa setup w/ moonlight that is 24" long and provides 65 watts for my 22 Gallon. I plan on getting an anemone down the road and some live rock here in a week or so when it looks like my cycle is moving along nicely.

Coraline is a bit more dependant on a more saturated CA then lighting. You just need a good coraline source to get it started. 3watts/gal is on the very low end for anemones. You could try a bulb tip but with that lighting it will likely need to be feed as a suppliment for lower lighting, even then, long-term thrivability will be in question.

You only need 3 watts per actual gallon is what I read on the internet (After your LR displaces water)
