Getting back into anenomes

I have a 40 gal fowlr and want to add back anenomes that were killed off in the last hurricane.. But this time I want them to flourish before hurricane season kills them all again. I have (existing) a 48"L flourescent actinic blue. What could replace this bulb to be strong/bright enough for anenomes to flourish? Or do you have to replace the whole fixture to accomodate the bulbs you'd need? I am clueless on this one guys. Lighting is my weakest link. Any advice would be nice! Thanks

I'm not sure I understand. You have a 48" single tube light with just an actinic bulb? No white lights? Most anemones are gonna require at least PC lighting or better.

I would go with PC lights. They aren't as expensive and with a 4x65w light, it will give you plenty of light to keep a number of species of anemones. I would also suggest that you take a look at some of the sites sponsors. PM them and let them know what you want and see what they can do for you. HTH
