Yeah i believe it's 2 years old. Still everything is working good. I underestimate how strong the light was.. I just added a hammer coral and placed him mid way up... It starred to bleach him a little. I moved him all the way to the bottom of the tank.

Im amateur so dont take my word for it but my lfs has this setup in one of his display tanks.
He keeps saying that i can do the same but i dont trust myself with nems yet as im not advanced enough yet. Im concerned about the nem stinging my other corals as i dont know what is compatible with what yet.

If he can do it i dont see why not any one else cant do it.

Maybe you can try a buld nem or a long tentacle which require less light. Place them up high and they will move lower if its too much light. If that works then you can get a sebae nem.

Tube Anemones require low lighting, maybe start with this

Long tentacle anemone require a deep sand bed of at least 3" or more they like to have there foot base in sand,

There's lots of web sites with great info on just anemone, sorry I forgot there names. but you can google it ( anemone care) they are great to have but require lots of attention.

IMO : I would just get stronger lighting and go from there

I agree. If you're doubting your lights, and others responded to your question doubting your lights, why make the nem an experiment? Just get the proper lighting if you'd like to keep one. Otherwise, there are plenty of nem-looking corals with lower light requirements.

he's there for a reason, any lower and it's not enough light for him. Watch your water changes so as not to let him hit air and as your lights slowly wear out he's not gonna be happy either.

I have 2 under an 8 T5 in a 90.. both hang in the bottom third.. It's not width that matters, it's depth
