For a sebae it would be o.k. LTA's and bubble tips require a bit more light.

Honestly I'd get the 2x65, so you KNOW you'll have enough light for soft corals and anemones.

I would also only suggest smaller anemone species for a 20 gal tank. BTA, condylactis or a beaded. I would not suggest many of the hosting species as they get too large and most will consume upto ¬Ĺ or more of the living space in a small tank.

Also be sure the tank has had time (>1year) to properly establish a stable ecosystem before adding any anemone.

Cheers
Steve
