Anenomes

Does anemones need strong light? I just bought the marineland led Light hood. And I want a few clownfish, and was wandering if anemones are required.

You do not need an anemone for clownfish...and you do not need clownfish for an anemone. They can both survive well enough on their own. You are correct, they do need strong lighting, and the marineland leds just do not provide strong enough lighting to support such a creature.

Indeed marineland LED are not good enough...even the ones that are reef capable. Tao LEDs are really good lights..

Ok thanks for your responses. I don't have the money to invest in stronger lighting right now, but i think I will still get the clowns. Is there any "cool creators" I could get for a low light tank? Any corals, macros, mushrooms, etc?

Not really sure... I bought the hood and it came with the light also. It has a bunch of clear LEDs and 3 blue LEDs. Here is a link... http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00474...dir=1387767821

It's not strong enough for anemones. I'm not even sure if any coral can be kept under those.

Agreed, taotronics are great. Have them on both my tanks and just bought my latest one off ebay for $109.
