While I am far from knowledged about salt tanks and corals/ananome I can say that every one of them seems to have their own light requirements. I think it would be a very good idea to research which ones you have to see how much light they need to survive in the tank and what kind. If nothing else, post what types of corals and anenome you have so members can help you with what lighting they need.

Also, I know Actinic lighting is normally needed for salt tanks.
