Sebae and lighting

Was wondering if my lighting was enough for a sebae anemone. I have two tanks. One is a 34 gal with an HQI 10k bulb. The other is a 75 gal with an 8 bulb 48" T5 setup with Red Sea max bulbs 3 white, 4 blue and 1 pink. Which tank is more suitable? Both are reefs. The 75 has a LOT of flow, the 34 not so much. Thanks in advance!

I have had my sebae in a 50gal with a 6lamp T5 fixture. He has been thriving and growing for 2 years. He moved toward the top of the tank, but he and his clownfish are doing great.

Good to hear. I have him in my 34 gal now... Hoping he can stay there but if the HQI isn't enough I'll put him in the 75. Thinking of getting him one or a pair of either pink skunk clowns or clarkiis.

So does anyone know if the sebae would do ok under the HQI 10k lights?? If like to move him ASAP if not. He's doing ok but still hasn't attached.

What is the wattage on the halide? Is it a 150, or 250?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Pretty sure it's a 150. The tank is about 18" deep

I'd wait a few days and see how it does. 150 isnt as powerful as people think lol, but it may be enough. But youre tank is a tad deep so Id see how well he does over the next few days.

Ok. If he starts getting pale or anything funky I'll move him to the 75. Thanks!

Heres a pic of him. He looks ok I think except his mouth is slightly open. He's a beige color, not white and he has blue tips.
