yes, they may have that light over coral tanks, but not to sustain them, just to showcase them.
the above statements are true. you will need a bit more light to keep an anemone long term.

I'm not saying it's right but in the early 90s my cousin had a 125 with no special lights. That housed many nems I believe they were condys. He also had multiple pairs of clownfish in that tank I was just a kid at the time but remember looking at it a lot. This tank thrived for a very long time.
