Is the watts per gallon the same as fresh water? 2-3 watts per gallon to raise anemone?

I would go about 4 wpg atleast, since you are wanting an anemone.

anemones live fine in captivity as long as you dont over feed them and have some good lighting and plenty of hallow type rocks. Their foot and extend up to 12 inches into a rock to anchor themselfs. Also make sure you put some sponges over your powerhead intakes. I lost 2 anemones because someone didnt tell me this. Just read as much as possible and ask lots and lots of questions.

You have just taken the step into a larger, more addicting then crack and World of Warcraft world. good luck

Ace,
I would highly recommend that you check out some of the articles that are listed here:

http://www.aquariumadvice.com/viewtopic.php?t=42920

They'll hit almost everything that you asked in your post.

Also, I would get one or two books, and read... then read 'em again.

I got "The Conscientious Marine Aquarist" by Fenner. Great book!

Do these two things, and 75% of your questions will be answered. The rest will be taken care of by the awesome folks on this site.

David

It is well worth your time and effort to read, read read, ask ask ask, before making hasty decisions
I agree 100%, I thought I did a lot of research for about 2 months about what to do. I asked people that I knew what they thought, and did a lot of talking with the LFS owner (very knowledgeable and trustworthy......and gives police discounts ) Even after what I thought was plenty of research and questions, I am still learning. I even question myself from time to time if I am capable of handling sw. I don't mean this to sound negative, my tank is my baby, and it is very time consuming. the highlight of my nights is watching the fish, making it all worth the effort.

In my opinion sand is better. More surface area and doesn't need vacumned. Regular dry agronite play sand works fine.
