What kind of light do i need for a sea Anemone

Need to know what kind of light I need for a sea Anemone and where I can find one cheap. I plan on getting a sea Anemone and a pair of clown fish and would like to be able to care for It properly

I like the LEDs to. My cousin has them in one of his tanks to simulate moon light but I don't think there enough for a sea anemone

That light will not work. What size tank are we talking? If talking less than 20 gallon I would say power compacts. More than that I would suggest T5`s at least. Lighting for an anenome can not be described as cheap.

Would defiantly recommend t5's... I have an eight bulb for my 90g and my RBT is prospering from it.

I too would recommend a T5HO system.

I was just giving this light the other day. I'm not sure what kind of light it says or how many watts it is. The kid that had it ripped all the stickers off. Will this one work
