I have a 46 gallon salt water tank and I just bought a dual lamp t5 ho and I want too add some anemones to it. Do I need a protien skimmer or a refugium for them?

From what I understand, you'd want a skimmer in the event there's uneaten food in the tank that the fish and/or anemone didn't want. The skimmer will help keep your water balanced by stripping water of waste and also increase your oxygen levels. I run a skimmer on my 29g salt tank and even with just live rock, it pulled out a little bit of gunk. Here's an easy read about skimmers that I thought highly informative. Hope I helped!
