As mentioned before a anemone is best to wait till your tank is established ,
As I have learned this first hand .
As for lighting , I have a ritteri anemone she is 12" across and starting to get color back after being bleached .
They are very picky creatures , I feed mine 1 raw small shrimp once a week sometimes every other week . It takes too much energy to digest too much this stressing them out more .
I would strongly recommend researching or asking questions and NOT trusting a sales man ever .
They are there to make a sale .
If the one they sold doesn't do well or survive they can sell you another .
A sad mentality but it's true .
Have you posted any information about your system ?
Rocks , sand bottom , stock , filtration ,
