Calm down?

You asked for advice, but are not providing the info so I asked again. What part of that requires anyone calming down?

Anyways, no you need a new light fixture to keep an anemone.

You want at least a 4 x 39 watt T5 HO fixture, ideally a 6 bulb would do the trick. $0 inches is an odd number, so I would get a 36 inch 6 bulb Tek light fixture. And hang it using the hanging brackets.

When you say 10k white bulbs, they are T8's?

And how are you running a MH

I honestly do not get your set up lol

Maybe I am not reading properly, what kind of fixture do you have? IS it a DIY fixture or?

How many bulb? and many watts? is the MH separate, it would have to be, can not run MH off a T8 fixture.

MY recommendation is if you plan on keeping anemones and other corals would be to invest in a T5 HO light set. Not compact fluorescent.

That is a big tank you are converting? 6 foot tank?

An actual MH fixture will do the trick for sure. But like I said I recommend a T5 HO/ LED combo vs MH.

MH hard on energy bill. T5 and LED consume much less.

I would go ATI or TEK Elite for that tank.
