Those are the highest power marineland LEDs I've ever heard of and even they are pretty much Crap for reef use.

Yeah I've been doing a little digging on them and I have to agree. They all use 1w max power LEDs, so there most likely being run at .5-.75 w and that's not going to support an anemone. If you really want a nem you should upgrade your lighting and return the condy and let your tank mature for another 6 months or so and try a BTA, generally considered the hardiest nem

Lighting isn't the only issue. Your tank is not mature enough for an anemone. It probably won't survive. You should take it back and wait another 6-8 months before adding another.

He may be looking okay now, but trust the info above. Try some waving hand soft coral. Requires little light and my clowns love hosting it. Try a euphilia (LPS) like frogspawn, although the clown might irritate it if it tries to host that.
