It does not sound like your lighting is strong enough for an anenome. You are going to need some high powered lighting. What type system do you have as lighting.

Unless it was cured LR you might be in for some trouble. One week is nowhere near enough. Keep real close tabs on your water parameters. You`ll probably need to do alot of PWC`s.

the guy at the store said it was cured and that i could just throw it in when i got home
what you suggest for lighting other than what i have or is what i have fine
as well as suggestions for tank mates for the fish i have i wanna get an anenome
and your opinion is live sand or crushed coral a better substrate for the bottom of tank

Ok. The guy at the fish store is by no means unbiased. You need to allow your tank to cycle. Fish should not be added until you have disappeared spikes of Ammonia and Nitrite and increasing Nitrate. Do you have a test kit?

You will need at minimum a T5 lighting fixture and MH would be better to keep a nem. Aragonite sand is the best substrate option IMO, it doesn't need to be "live". It will become so in time. CC will trap wastes and cause problems down the road. Please read the stickies and articles.

The brown stuff is probably a natural occurance for a non-established system. It takes months before the algaes die off as the tank establishes.
