Hi all, as the title says really my tank has been up and running about 6-7 months its a juwel trigon 190 sumped and it has 6-7 soft corals 7 fish a few shrimps,starfish,urchin,crabs etc and 2 T5 HO 54W bulbs 1 marine white and 1 actinic blue was wondering if i can add a cody anemone or is it a bad idea? Will it jut roam around and sting everything else? I was planning on keeping it in a clear container with holes drilled and a mesh lid with a rock for it to hopefully attach to Iv attached a picture of test result from my water just now salinity is 1.025

Thanks

I think your tank is ready but your lights probably aren't going to cut it. Nems need intense lighting.

You can't force an anemones to stay anywhere. It will move where it wants to. Using the clear container is not going to help. I also agree that you don't have enough light.

T5 is just the type of lamp. It's not the intensity. I would have at least 4 T5 lamps over your tank, but 6 would be better.

You have 50 x 1W (bridgelux?) leds for a 48" tank. Even if they are driven to 100%, which it sounds like, it will be touch-and-go for an anemone. Might work tho with the 2 T5HO bulbs.
