nem and light queston

ok so i picked up some more coral from the store closer to me. i didnt have time to go to the normal store, after a few days in the water i noticed two anemones growing on 1 of the rocks they are very small and im worried its the bad ones. ill try to get a pic tonight, last night i tore one off and trashed it i only have two flourescent bulbs right now so i dont think its anything special to grow in conditions like that.
I also was told by the store owner that with 48 gallons a metal halide bulb would be too much intensity whats everyones outlook on that? i dont want to burn everything up, but i want it to look good

Removing them by hand will not work.
Do they look like the 1st pic:

Lighting is such a subjective thing.... I run a 250w MH and 130w cf actinic on a 29 gallon. You judge what is too much.

IMO if you can afford the cash, you can not go wrong with mh.
