What size tank do you have now? What type of lighting do you have? Even some of the Low-light anenomes require about 3.5-4 watts/gal. of at least PC lighting...Lando

If you are wondering about an anenome for the 50 gal. show tank, you will need a lot more lighting to keep one. You will need at least another 200 watts to keep something like a bulb tip enenome. Keep in mind that show tanks are generally deeper then standard tanks. This too will cause problems as you will need more wattage (preferablly coming from MH) to penetrate to the bottom of the tank.

You would need about 200w before considering something like a BTA.. and a lot more for most other anemones.

Thanks for the input.. I'll just stick to FOWLR until I hook up my PC setup again.
