I don't have led
so I think I should leave the lighting question for someone more experienced with that to answer .
As for the nem and skimmer
I have had a ritteri anemone for the last year and being notoriously the hardest nem to keep I seam to be doing pretty good .
I went away for a weekend last May and got a friend to check on things for me , needless to say I came home to a over heated tank and a white nem .
Since then I have nursed her back to colour .
And she has found a place she loves .
Pretty high up on the rocks , right dead centre lol I'll attach a picture .
So they say a anemone that travels isn't a happy anemone .
As for a skimmer ?
What's your set up ?
Size , stock , filtration ?
I wouldn't personally run. Reef without a skimmer ,
But It can be done and successfully ,
I only have a canister filter that I only run Purigen and filter floss .
I rely on the skimmer and 2lbs of rock per gallon as my main source of filtration .
This is the most recent picture .
