Good idea taking the anemone back to the store. Corals are much better choice, though the hard ones still need lots of light so do go with the lighting upgrade. Anemones can live to a hundred years or more in the wild and tend to die in 6months to a year in most tanks. Not a great trade off IMO.

The prows have given you good advice, what they diden't teach you PATIENCE !!!!!!
something they taught me at the very start----- your going too fast.

1 get the right equipment, skimmer ,PH , lights good for the type of tank you want to have FO or and reef tank.
2 get your LR in, get the tank running check your # for a few weeks then and only then you may be ready ?????? for a few fish maby.
3 Forget CORALS- ANEMONES etc.
4 When things are right and now know a little more and read a book about all this------ a lot of weeks later of course.
you could start with a POLYP or a MUSHROOM.

SORRY to RAIN on your parade. Haste is $ waste.

I thank stresco- steve-s and others who taught me well and i am doing well.
