Taking the anemone back

I guess I don't have the right light so I'm gonna take the bta back. The clownfish really like the anemone so is there any anemone/ coral I could get that they will like? My frogspawn does really well under my lights so I might get a torch/hammer. Cause I doubt that any anemone can live under my lights. Any recomendations?

If your frogspawn is doing well, I would suspect your anemone may also. Refresh my memory...what lighting and tank are we talking about? How is the frogspawn "doing well"? Has it retained bright color since you bought it?

Well I have a 2 bulb t5 ho over a 36 gallon tank.

The frogspawn is just starting to grow another head and the head it already has is HUGE!!!

The anemone has just been off and on. One second it's doing great next second it's face down on the sand bed and I have to put it on a rock.

The one in your avatar doesn't seem to be doing great, but One thing I will say, if you added another 2 bulb T5 fixture like the one you have, I bet your frogspawn would do even better and your anemone may also. Either way, if you want a reef, I suggest you increase the lighting. Why not do it now?

Good plan Taos will burn up some stuff if you leave them too high though so start low

That fixture you posted is the Taotronic unit. Taotronic is just one name they go by, there are many people re-branding these and calling them theirs.
