Actually not the case. Though they do need a very established tank (1+ year) they also need intense lighting as well.

I'm gonna say that if it chooses to stay near the top you'll be fine, but 6 lamps would be better for it since that's not always the case.

Chrisl6069 - What kind of anemone do you have?

I`m going to say also that you really need the 6 bulb set up. I personally dont think you have enough there.

Are you sure? A google search for mowie and Maui (which is what I thought it might be) returns nothing.

All I saw were anemones from the Maui Ocean Center, which is not a species of anemone

No anemone should be white. That is a bleached heteractis malu a.k.a. sebae anemone.

This is what a sebae should look like.
