OK, my 55g is underway. Right now, since it will be a few weeks until I get any fish, anenomes, etc., I'm just running a pair of those "coralife 50/50" bulbs. Are these bulbs strong enough for anemones, and some of the more hardy corals??? ANother question I have is if/when I get a new light setup, probably either custom compact or those newer T-5 setups, are you supposed to run a daylight bulb during the day, and then an actinic blue bulb at night, or do you run them at the same time and then run a "moonlight" overnight??? Help, please!!!!

You would need a lot more lighting for anenomes. Also they are not really good beginner creatures. They need a well established tank with stable water conditions. Best is if the tank is at least 6 months old or more perferably a year. Also most species are not known for lasting a long time in the aquarium and should be attempted by experts.
