Oftentimes new tanks that are overstocked or stocked with animals they cannot support will seem "fine" only to deteriorate in the near future. The most lethal part of overstocking or stocking with the wrong inhabitants is not immediate, and I would recommend removing the nem until you have a mature tank, and have guaranteed sufficient lighting.

Once again, if the nem dies, you will have a much bigger problem on your hands.

Regarding the lights you have, you mentioned 1 set blue and 1 set white plus a halide light (MH). I'm guessing that is 2 bulbs of T5 HO lights in each set. If so, this light will support your anemone if the bulbs are new. Sadly, if it's a used light you may need to replace the bulbs as they are good for less than a year.
Run the blues longest, 8-10 hours probably. Whites next about 6-8 hours and the MH about 4 hours.
Watch the corals and for any sign of bleaching. You might need to cut back times or raise the fixture some. If algae starts to grow that is a good indication the light spectrums are drifting to the longer wavelengths, meaning its bulb change time.

Send a message via AIM to Breakthecycle2
Is that an actual pic of it? If so, how many anemones do you have?
