Most mushrooms require lower lighting. Most anemone's require higher lighting.

Different corals have different lighting requirements. A T5 fixture with 6 or 8 watt bulbs would provide ample light for most corals, barring some of the SPS corals. But lighting like that would be no good for Mushrooms and other low light corals unless you could arrange them into a shady spot in the tank.
