Depending on the size of the tank, you may be able to keep an anemone with PC lighting. They require high light so your tank would need to be shallow. I've kept a bubble tip under PC lighting but only for a few months before upgrading my lighting. (this was on my frag system) I always recommend at least T5 lighting for an anemone and MH is much better!

Same here but as he said PC`s might work on a 10 or twenty gallon tank IMO
