Hi guys. Im new here. I have setup and running a Basic Marine tank for about 6months now.

Its a 180L Cube tank with a sump.
Not sure about all these technical terms as im still learning here ,
Skimmer is a Bubble magus curve 3.5. 2 x wavemakers.
Lights are 2xT5 and a LED Setup. Will get proper hardware specs and post it up later.

Livestock: 2x Clowns
2x Bengai Cardinals
2x Chromis
1x Antheas
1x hermit crab
1x Purple tip sebae anemone
1x Coco Worm

I agree with @RiaanP your tank is a bit new for a anemone, especially a seabae. They are notoriously difficult to keep alive for more than 6 months. Very few reefers have success with them, I had one and only lived for 14 months and suddenly it decided to part ways with me. In the beginning they are open quite nicely for a couple of months and then the problems start but good luck maybe you have better luck with it.:thumbup1:

Now im gonna be paranoid about the anemone :001_huh: , So he is officially for sale, anyone interested can PM me, rather let him go now until my tank is mature enough.

So i finally have some hardware specs:
54cm Cube Tank with a 30cm Cube Sump
JVP 101 Wavemaker
SEIO Prop 530 Wavemaker
SA-600 LED lights
2x 24w T5 Tubes (white and blue)
200w Heater
Sebo WP-4000 Pump
Bubble magus 3.5 Skimmer

I have recently added a Sand sifting starfish, Question: Are these hardware specs sufficient for my setup ?

Depending on what corals you want to keep, you'll need to add more lighting. Only two tubes is far too little for an anemone.

@Iry-gp we all make mistakes. At least you are willing to listen to good advice. With time, patience and careful planning you will be able to purchase some nice livestock and enjoy it. Just remember we (MASA) are all here to help so just ask :thumbup:.
