If petland is your only fish store then yeah, I guess i would get it there. I'd check out some other stores though, even if they're further away, especially if your looking for a nem. They are super sensitive creatures.

What kind of light do you have? i don't think we got that outta ya. lol

When I had my nem, I fed him little pieces of siversides every couple days. You can't overfeed or you can stress them out and they can die.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

For a bubble tip, you can have t5hos since they are moderate light. Try to aim for 4 or 6 bulbs.

There are moderate light nems? I've never heard of that! But I dont have a bta so maybe youre right. On live aquaria it says moderate to high light.

I wouldnt go with anything less than a T5 4 bulb individually reflected light setup. The individual reflectors will let you get the most out of your fixture and bulbs and some say they can compare to MH.

Just my 2 cents

That's crazy! Are anemones the most light needing thing? Or are there coral that needs more light?

I think the nems are the most light demanding creatures, next to clams. There could be some corals but I'm unfamiliar with any that have such strong requirements. maybe SPS?
