Anenome Care

Hey all!!!
im semi new to the salt water world however completely new to keeping an anemone happy, unfortunately i was sold a rose bud anemone with inadequate lighting, i was under the impression from the store i would be able to keep him happy healthy with what i have.
i currently have 2 T8 lights will be upgrading soon.
does anyone have any suggestions to keep him happy till i can upgrade in a couple weeks time?

How is he now?

You could return him!
Put it in a friends tank!
Get better lighting if you think that's the issue!

Your anemone won't survive under T8 lighting for 2 weeks I'm afraid. Best bet is to return him if you can.
