lighting req's for a BTA

ok, I want to do some research on a BTA, Entacmaea quadricolor..

I know that anemones do not need full light, this has been corroborated by many experts, but anyways, back to this..

every site I go to it says they require medium to high light. what exactly is that ? 5+ wpg ? I currently have 4.5wpg on my tank, will this do ?



55 gallon fw
-1 Pleco
-3 Yellow Labs (+ babies in maternity tank)
-1 Blue peacock
-1 Syno Cat

The least amount of light would be 3 wpg. Your 4.5 wpg is fine.

We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.

I agree, I have a rose and a green BTA that does great under 3.6 watts of CF lighting.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
