my tank is fully cycled (6 months, it took forever)
magnificent anemone
2 clarkii clowns
some algae eating blenny

What 50-50 metal halides? you mean power compacts. they don't make a 50 50 MH bulb?

you will be fine with that fish load just have a good skimmer.

6 months to cycle? what the **LL happened?

You don't have "4 65 watt metal halide 50/50 bulbs." You must have PC's? Are they fluorescent? Metal Halides are not. Can we see pics of the anemone? You likely don't have enough light to keep it long term.

i haven't gotten any of the fish yet.
but when i said 50/50 i meant the blue and white bulbs.
thx for the help:)
