Mine is open all day in full light, as the sun sets (LEDs), it slowly closes down to its nightly resting spot. If I feed it it closes on the food, then it's more sun bathing.

Same here closes after eating. But It was all closed for first 2 days. I noticed it opens more after 6pm till night.

But at present i have 2 regular compact florescent bulbs that say 13w = 60 watts running.

But people said it will die without the proper light. Doesn't look dying to me right now.
But I am so new to this I may be wrong.

But another day it's looking great.

That's def a Condy Nem which costs about $10 dollars. And as for light if you dong wanna shell out alot just buy a T5HO Lighting system from aquatraders.com just don't buy hallide from them. I grow SPS on my 55 with only their 200w system and it looks great. Here's a 4 bulb system that could keep your anemone alive without a problem http://www.aquatraders.com/24-inch-4...re-p/52303.htm and you can even add some mushrooms, zoas, and other med to low light corals as long as you have reef safe fish and the fixture is only 65

I have been using metal halides from Aquatraders for 4 years now,first a 36" fixture on a 46 gallon bow front and now a 48 " with 2x 250 watt on a 75 gallon with no problems.People read stuff that is from 7 to 10 years ago and still go by it.
I had a Coralife 36" PC and then got the One from Aquatraders with the MH.Put the two fixtures beside each other and as far as quality and materials if you took the Coralife name off the one fixture you couldn't tell the difference.
Where do you think the Coralife and Marineland fixtures are made?

The problem with the Internet is nothing ever leaves it.

People need to post only information from experience and not from old out of date info.

the anemone is still alive because you have 2 60 watt clfs on a 20 gallon hospital. look at this: T5HO - WPG is not the way to go. - Fish Tank TV with the light where you have it, and amount of wattage, your anemone is getting some pretty good light. now if you move it back to the 30g that would change, but for now you're not killing it. (at least not with lack of light). From a customer service perspective, if you get back at reef spot (i think that was them) and continue to belligerently request to speak to management, and generally cause a fuss, they will refund your money.

oh, and clown fish are immune to anemone stings. Its kinda their thing. Watch finding nemo
