Hitchhiker anemones

I bought some macro today from lfs and it has a few anemones on it. I'm only running two t5 ho florescent bulbs rated at 54 watts. Will that live in that little lighting

Get ready to do alot of work to get rid of them if there are that many. I;d say peppermint shrimp might help but the one looks kinda big. You can inject aipastia X into each one and get rid of them that way. Just gotta be sure to get the mouth cause if you dont it will spit out a hundred more babies and then it will just get worse.
