I believe I answered the question that you asked. I'm sorry if you didn't like the answer I gave you but you asked about an animal that is difficult to keep for an advanced hobbist. The anemone you have does not need to be in a tank that is barely established.
may have several carpets in tanks without MHs but they will not have them for extended periods of time either. They are there to sell not sit and grow. Frankly I'm not impressed with the LFS
you went to if they sold you a carpet without asking you about your tank. They should have let you know that your tank was too young to support the carpet.
Oh and please keep the comments to yourself, no one was trying to make you feel bad or being a jerk.
Now, our recomendation is to return the carpet and allow your tank to mature. After you have had it established for 8 or more months then look at getting an anemone.
