Enough Lighting?

I just got a PC 4x65 with (2) 10,000K Premium-Daylight & (2) Ultra-Actinic. With a 55gal tank. Is that enough light for an anemones? Also what about clams or do they need Metal Halide? Thanks all.

hmmm, yes I think you probably have enough for a hardy anemone, like a TR bubble tip anemone, however, it is not recommended that you try anemones until your tank has matured for a year, as well as your reefing experience. I think you can keep most clams, I would stay away from T. crocea and T. maxima, the others should do fine in your lighting.
