Just an idea
+1 ive seen people try all types of things. This seems to work best imo. However its a short lived affair since the nem will become stressed even after a day of being without proper lighting.. though like already stated there is a large success rate with wild caught. Obviously because they are harvested from them.

Well, thats why you have the "QT/refugium" inside the tank... no change in light, no change in anything, really!

Thats not really a good idea..it doesnt provide the area for proper macro algea growth. Which intern limits you the ability to cut nitrates !

Doesn't that stress the anemone, when you remove them from the tank with the clownfish wouldn't they get stressed? By-the -way, I have T8 bulbs. They are Ocean Sun, 10000k High Intensity Lamps. Are they enough for my anemone?

Personally I dont think that is adequate lighting for a nem, but I am no expert. I have 2 nems and they are under 8 bulb t5ho.

Well as my finances get better, so will my lights. I just wanted to know what would be an upgrade. I don't want to break the bank, but I don't want to go ghetto cheap (no offense).
