This tank has regular lighting and it's about 2 years old. The clown fish have been laying eggs a lot so I want to change the lighting in there for their anemone. I hope they feel a little more comfortable when I do. I bought a tank divider so when the time comes and they have more eggs they won't feel threatened and kill them again.....

There's no way guarantee the clowns will host the nem, or that the nem will accept them if they try

Clowns don't readily host nems for the most part. For lighting you will want a 6 bulb t5 ho or 2 eBay leds (120w ones)

Yeah I'm looking at about 400 bucks for the lighting I want for it not cheap but it will look awesome in the end.

You could spend half that and get the taos(eBay). What lights are they?

Here everyone uses these (Not everyone) they work well too: Blue/White Reef LED 120w

Not sure if I linked Dimmable ones. There are full spectrum ones too. Just type reef led in on eBay.

Does that mean really high or really low? If you have a ton of money, Ecotech Radions, pretty amazing!

On lights! WOAH! Yeah, look at the radions. If you get the normal ones, not xpros you should be just under a grand.
Here: Ecotech Marine. Radions Gen 3

Haha true. The radions are the top of the line lights. Ecotech Marine, and Aqua Illuminations are the two best brands, IMO. Actually, they just happened to merge. Ecotech will be high end, AI middle of the road.
