Questions about my two Clownfish and Anemone

I have an orange/white clownfish, and a black/white clownfish.

The orange/white clownfish is a bit bigger and keeps darting straight into the black/white clown fish every now and then. Not too sure exactly what's happening. =/

The orange/white clownfish was by himself at the LFS while the black/white clownfish was with a bunch of other black/white clownfish and we tried to pick the bigger one.


Second question, I currently have an anemone that looks like this

What kind of anemone is this and will the clownfish eventually host in it? Cause at the moment, they're not even going near it.

The clowns are probably just duking it out to see who will be dominant.

As for the nem, it looks to be a sebae anemone and unfortuantely on its way to its deathbed.

What kind of lights do you have, and what are you water parameters?

Sounds good about the clownfish!

About the name, I took that picture within the first ten minutes of putting it into my tank so it may have been a bit freaked out.
I have 62 watts in my 29 gallon tank.
After about 3 hours, my name is just chilling on the bottom is a lot more opened up but still not completely open =/
Amonnia, Nitrite, Nitrate are 0

Just out of curiosity Is this a new tank, and was it cycled?

As for the lights, what exact type of lights do you have? If T5s, how many bulbs. If LEDs what is the wattage for a single LED?

It was a new tank, but I got live sand and live rock. They're T5's and they're two long bulbs.

This is the thread I made for lighting
Lighting for coral!

Unfortunately sebaes are one of the more difficult nems and barely any clown species will host it. You will need much stronger lighting than those 2 t5s for it. Think 6-8 t5s/metal halides or powerful leds

Are you serious? I specifically asked my LFS about which Anemone to get =/

Are you sure this is a sebae nem?

From the pic it looks like it but maybe get one with it fully extended. The picture is kinda hard to tell

a 2bulb T5 is not going to support any anemone. You could get away with a 4 bulb and a BTA, but that's cutting it close.

In the thread you mentioned, you should have asked about anemones. They require the most light, like SPS corals. Your lighting won't cut it I'm afraid.
