The lighting requirement is moderate, do you think he will be fine for 2 weeks under normal light until my heatsink led is installed? I'm planning to order the tunze also but wasn't sure which is better

The lighting requirement is kinda misleading. It says that in the lighting needed, then lower it tells you it needs strong lighting to thrive. I think ou rok fo a couple weeks with less light, they are kept in some LFS with weeker lighting for longer than that sometimes.
Anemones need alot of light, they are at the top of the charts for that.

He seems to be ok, I tried feeding him frozen mysis shrimp through a turkey vaster but I don't think he ate it. Didn't really acknowledge the food as much as I thought. He seems to be moving around for a good place to stay. My wife is going to pick up 2 clowns from a lfs today

Gotta watch that part, about the clowns. The Anemone has to be big enough for both, or they'll beat the crap outta it. I guess you gotta see it for yourself, Clowns are pretty rough on Anemones.

Oh ok, so is that something I should do myself instead of my wife? I emailed rapidled about the retro and plan to order and attempt to install the heatsink led retro. Hope to have it installed in 2-3 weeks!

You can let the wife do it, its gonna happne one way or another. They might not even take to the Anemone at first. Retro kits are great to work with. Have fun doing it.

The clowns won't damage the anemone to the point that it dies right? If so I'll stock up my corals first since they host frogspawns on occasion

They can, yes. With one clown you have a better chance, unless you get a large Anemone. And yes, they will host Frogspawn and other stinging corals.

If I add my clowns at separate times will they co-exist, or should I just start adding all my corals and wait for my fish for last?

I'd try to add them at the same time, you have a better chance of one not being a bully being the first in the tank later on.
