Lightning Maroon Anemone Tank

So as I I mentioned in my 20L thread I recently bought a small lightning maroon clown. It's been a favorite of mine since bursting onto the scene in 2012 and when I was offered a sweet deal through work I decided to jump on it. As a temp home, I grabbed a used nano cube to home the fish until I get the time to set up a 30g I have laying around.

The tank will only house the clown with a few inverts as well as several varieties of BTAs. My only question is do you guys think the stock CFLs along with w stunner strips would be enough for a nem in the nanocube?

And here's the stunners I am going to add to the hood if that will be sufficient for a BTA

I believe the ecoxotic panorama strips which aren't technically the stunner strips. I just loosely refer to them as that. I used to have one strip of all actinic and then a 2nd with 2/3 white 1/3 actinic over my 20L reef which grew LPS, birdnest, and monti's fairly well but they slowly cropped out so I changed it up. I got these 2 other for free so I figured I'd give em a try. Combined with the CFLs I would think that would be enough for a nem since just the strips was sufficient for my reef. I will double check to make sure they're not the actual stunner strips and and give an update

Congrats on the new inverts! They are so much fun, I love watching the crabs in different parts of the tank. The nice thing about being small is that they can pretty much fit themselves anywhere!

Just realized I never added a picture of her.. I'll snap one when I get to work today. The tank is ready to go so a couple days ago I added a green chromis just to make sure things were squared away haha. Just puts the heart at ease knowing the tank is good to go for fish before tossing the lightning maroon in haha. Either gonna bring back the "rental" chromis today or tomorrow and finally bring home the clown!

Also anenome`s need a tank with stable parameters. It usually takes about a year for it to get completely stable. They wont tolerate parameter jumps or nitrates.
