A T5HO system will work fine.

I would wait for the anemone. Your clowns don't really need them.
Here is proof... My B & W hosting on a bunch of Zoas...Ha, ha that was funny to see.

No i just have the hydrometer but the thanks for your help i will look into better lighting and a test kit for ammonia and nitrates in water.
So that lighting setup you suggested for the anenome is that good for your live rock as well

Forget the lights and the anemone for now. A better investment would be a protein skimmer at this point. I would get one that would work on the 100 gal that you said you would be going to. As far as tank mates I would not put anything else in that 35.

A good t-5 light system is going to cost between $200 and $500 for the 100 gal. don't waste money on anything for your 35 that won't work on your 100. I would suggest just "practice" keeping your water good with the tank and live stock you have. You are going to be doing A LOT of water changes to get those clowns and damsels through your cycle. Those water changes are going to slow down you cycle.

I know that it is exciting geting everything up and going but SLOW wins this game.

Live rock doesn't need heavy lighting. The bacteria and the corline algae will be fine. With the bio load you already have in the tank the protein skimmer is next. after that the lights and then the fun stuff like corals.
