    Hey aminyassiem

    The 3 fluoresent lamps you are talking about are they T8's and if so how many watts are they? I think for fish only the lights you have there will be fine, but NOT for an anemone.

    What anemone are you planing on keeping?

    Here is a pic, it's a fluorescent light that is sort of bent into two to make it smaller, you can get these in about 96watt, if you can add 2 of these it should help the anemone.

    OK 120 W flourescent is way way too little for this size tank and an anemone!

    but you say the other tank is how far from done?a few weeks or months? or days?

    because if you feed it properly it can probably hold out under that lighting for a month or two but feed small pieces daily.

    if its going to be longer than 2 months for your new tank to be ready then upgrade your lights as you need atleast double the amount you currently have. ie another 120w of flourescent (decent brands though-try getting phillips t8 865. the 865's are high output t8's.
