clownfish and Anemone Questions

So I got a brand new clown and do they need an anemone to survive. Also what type of lighting is needed for a rose tip and a candy anemone.

No, clowns do not need an anenome. Actually, they will host just about anything and could care less about an anenome. If you have a new tank dont even consider one, they need a tank that has been established for roughly 8 months. They need very high lighting as well

What is your setup? Parameters? How long has the tank been established? They are very agressive an will kill inverts and small fish if they are given the chance, and sting other corals

I personally haven't heard too many good things about those. Not very strong lighting and I know people who had issues with it. You would be better of with t5 lights or halides. IMO of course

The marineland "reef capable" lighting actually isn't. I'd go with a solid 6+ T5 bulb fixture, 250 Metal Halide, or some decent LEDs.
