I understand what you are saying on this one. Thee are a lot of things in the hobby that people feel that they can get away with when it comes to meeting the requirements of a creature. Just keep in mind that this is only short term. Anemones don't have an expiration, but yours will. It is our responsibility as hobbyist to provide based need and not just the minimum. Okay, I will get off my soap box now.

There are a lot of very affordable fixtures out there that will sustain these creatures in the long term. Try PC lighting: your animals will thank you for it in growth and color.

PC = power compact ... great lighting half the price of Metal Halide!

Look at www.hellolights.com for some good prices on lighting!




ps- try not to type in all caps!

If you want any anemone your pretty much going to need a good bit of Power Compact lighting.

In the mean time, feed the condy..... that won't keep it alive forever, but it will lessen the stress for the little guy....

I see the anemone is HIGH in the tank... My bet would be its trying to get as close to those lights as possible to get what it requires to live.
This is not a cheap hobby and if you want to do things right for the creatures we keep we need to spend some $$$. Don't buy another anomone save the money and get some better lighting if all you have are NO bulbs.
How long have you had that anemone?
Why are you YELLING!!

WAAAAAAAAAAIT May I jump in here fast. You say you've had the tank for two months and had the condy's the same period of time. PLEASE tell me your are saying the tank has been cycled for 2 months and not that you cycled the tank WITH the aneome in it? Even if the tank was cycled for 2 months thats still not enough time IMO to be keeping an aneome I would recommend bringing it back to the LFS, reading up on this hobby and taking advise from someone other than the person who told you keeping an aneome in NO lighting would cut it.

Also a word to the wise. Sunlight through a window will cause you more problems than benefits. You will start seeing algae growth from the direct sunlight on the tank.
