Diy led help

Hello I am new to this site and would like to thank y'all for any help I get from here

So down to business I am planning on upgrading my lighting to rapid led's 12 premium kit

What I would like to know is if I could keep anemones with this lighting and how high would I need to put the fixture if I used no lenses

Tank is 8 months old steady params

I'm adding a 24 LED retro kit to my JBJ 24gallon nano cube and my lights will be about 2-3 inches above my water. And I've been told multiple
Times that I will be able to keep whatever I want in my tank as far as lighting goes. I think you will be fine with keeping that stuff.

I don't know if rapidled offers it. But if
There is an option for a high noon kit. And you can afford
It, then it would be a good idea for best growth. I will
Have my blues cut of then about an
Hour later the. Regular whites. Then for about 4 hours, the high noon will
Cut on. I will have 3 stages of light from my kit.
