Not enough lighting for an anemone, unfortunately. They do best with ALOT of light, like a four bulb fixture.

If it were me, I would swap him out for something else until you get the proper lighting.

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

+1

would also like to add they like a well established tank I wouldn't put one in a tank that was less than one year old.

Might be able to swing mushrooms and other low light corals but thats a maybe, depends on your tank's depth and placement of corals.

I would look into a 4 bulb fixture. Check out either

fish need it;lights; food;Sponge

I have some mushrooms and some zoas and they are doing great. The lighting is 1 39w actinic and 1 39w daytime light. Could I just get another fixture of the same lights?

Yep, you could get another 2 bulb fixture and be ok. That will open up the possibilties of getting more corals like LPS, hammers and the like.
