yes, wait a bit more before adding an anemone. Have your water parameters stabilized? Do you have a decent lighting system going? Anemones require a good amount of light.

I'm sorry to say a 2 bulb T5 fixture won't be strong enough to keep an anemone. you're going to need more/better light. Is your torch ok? 2 bulbs for lps is also on the very low end.

Wait 6 months and you will need at least a 4 bulb t5. Anemones are not corals.. They are inverts.
