Here is a picture of my anemone...soon to be the LFS 's again. What kind is it? Im not sure ... Anyway thanks for all your advice on this topic. Its better to see the anemone live a longer life in a better suited (matured) tank. So, with the anemone out of the picture what should I mark as priority for the rest of my inhabitants, the lighting or the UGF removal replaced with a skimmer?

Looks like the Bulb Anemone. It’s probably for the best that you are returning it. As far as the rest reducing your fish load, getting a decent amount of base/lr, & a quality skimmer and you should be on your way Worry about PC/MH lighting in 8+ months if you still want corals.

You had mentioned that your tank was 1 month old and you have good readings so it’s probably mostly cycled and I wouldn’t get rid of your clowns personally. Just watch your levels and do pwc as needed if you get any detectable levels of nh3/no2.

Forgot www.wetwebmedia.com is also an excellent resource for this hobby.

It's a haitian anemone (condylactis sp.) and I think you are doing the right thing by returning. I agree with tecwzrd that you should concentrate on getting some live/base rock and use that to replace your ugf. With enough rock (1.5-2lbs per gal) and a few powerheads, that's all the filtration you would really need. Then you could add a skimmer later on as well as better lighting if you decide to try the anemone again in a few months. Keep researching, your on the right track.
