It's enough for softies, LPS, and probably some SPS depending on the coral placement. Anemone on the other hand, I would say no.

If you really want an anemone the maxi mini does well with good t5 lights. They look more like a mushroom than an anemone. I had one under metal halides and it never stayed put I put it under t5 lights and it is bigger than ever. It is best if your tank is at least a year old before adding any anemone.

They should only be put in well established tanks, but that I mean at least 6 months but it is best to wait a full year. They are coming down in price finally the first ones I was seeing was over $100 now they are about $29 to $50. Make sure you have a high quality of bulb to keep them happy.
