kind of a stupid question..

I was hoping to have clownfish and an anemane in my tank with live rock in my new tank, my question is, is an anemane considered coral? Do they need coral type conditions?

An anemone is an invertebrate. They need very good water quality and very good light.

no T5s are good as long as you have the right amount of bulbs. what size is your tank, what are the dimensions

I have T5 lights and all my anemones have died except my rock anemone. I dont think this is good enough light for them because everything else seems to be doing well.

are you sure it was just your lighting, or your water parameters?

then check your water, 4x39watt T5s should be more then enough to light up 17inches by 12 inches deep, if you want to be on the safe side go with 6 lamps and not worry about anything but your water conditions
