Question possible anemone in the future

I realize that it takes awhile for a tank to mature to have an anemone. Right now for lighting i have this fixture i was wondering if that was strong enough for inverts, but if not, ive heard of LED light strips that you can attach to fixture to enhanced lighting, anybody else have experience with them?

thanks,
Tyler

Personally while thats a great fixture I don't think it's enough to support a nem. How big is your tank?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I would say you would need a a 4bulb fixture. Nem are great but I would personally not put one in a 30 gal. If you like that type of look you should try torch coral, bubble coral, or a hammer coral.

I think somewhere down the road when i have an established tank, im going to try my luck with some coral, i saw some awesome looking ones at my LFS, im going to have to make the switch to a 4 bulb fixture it seems lol not now tho, its a little out of my price range lol, thank you for your input guys

Here's a base line 4 bulb fixture and its cheap and well reviewed.

3Ft/4Bulbs fixture

Thats the bare minimum I would suggest for keeping a good variation of basic corals.
