 Hey  Pritesh!
 Sorry  for  the  late  reply  but,  I  guess  the  super  white  light  is  a  good  choice  only  thing  you  need  is  a  combination  of  actinics  instead  of  coral  blue.
 One  more  thing,  out  of  approximately  1000  species  of  anemones  known  to  man  only  10%  of  them  are  good  host  to  anemone  fish  or  clowns
Azoo  Coral  Blue  and  Super  White  are  just  fancy  names  given  to  actinics  and  normal  tubelights,  so  that  LFS  can  charge  more  for  them.                

 I  am  afraid  buddy,  but  a  company  like  azoo  will  not  claim  something  ficticious,  they  do  come  with  a  colour  temp.  chart  printed  on  the  tube's  packing  and  I  personally  have  used  them  with  excellent  results  -  this  stands  true  for  even  planted  set-ups  (I  mean  the  super  whites)
 sorry  but,  I  will  stick  to  my  experiences  and  some  bookish  knowledge  with  tells  me  that  Laluprasad  is  right  in  saying  what  he  said  above,  a  carpet  anemone  is  too  much  for  a  rather  smallish  false  percula  to  handle  but,  as  they  say  experience  is  the  best  teacher  I  will  stand  corrected  if  you  can  provide  us  with  pictures  of  the  rather  strange  phenomenon  you  claim  to  have  happened  in  your  tank  (symbiosis  is  a  matter  of  choice,  convenience  and  a  strong  weapon  to  survive)  so  it  can  be  possible  but,  then  again  the  clown  will  always  be  vulnerable  esp.  with  a  carpet  anemone  (probably  one  reason  why  Pritesh's  fish  dis-own  it!)  
 chill  man!!
Under  strong  lighting(any  spectrum)  if  the  tank  has  ample  nutrients  including  DOA's,  phosphates  and  silicates,  and  if  there  are  no  species  competing  for  those  nutrients  and  no  algae  eaters  around,  thats  when  the  algae\cyano  levels  rise.  Put  a  caulerpa  under  strong  24hrs  lighting  and  have  fun!!                  

 Granted!!  Amod,  provided  the  above  environment  I  would  love  to  see  your  caulerpa  multiply   Very Happy   end  of  one  month  you  will  be  harvesting  a  bald  rock  which  once  hosted  the  caulerpa!!  
6500K  Mh  will  not  cause  algae  at  all.  I  have  been  using  a  150W  bulb  on  a  60x18x18  of  the  same  colour  for  over  a  year  and  haven't  had  ANY  algae  problems  yet.  it  runs  for  around  5-6  hours  a  day...                  

 Amond,  I  am  sorry  to  interrupt  again....
 lets  get  this  thing  straight  once  and  for  all,  we  are  talking  about  full  spectrum  lights  and  not  just  6500!  Do  you  club  actinics  with  the  6500*K  lights?  If  so  why?
 People  desire  for  10000*K  +  lights  for  reasons  more  than  just  growing/not  growing  algae   -  one  of  the  reason  is  asthetics.....of-course  just  one  of  the  reason  but,  important  enough  to  mention,  I  mean  that  is  one  of  the  biggest  reason  why  people  up-grade  to  marines,  don't  they?

 Totally  agree,  but  i  just  meant  regarding  the  myth  that  a  6500k  is  an  algae  growing  'colour'  temp,  just  wanted  people  to  know  that  algae  growth  is  not  'only'  dependant  on  the  kind  and  intensity  of  the  light.
 provided  the  above  environment  I  would  love  to  see  your  caulerpa  multiply   Very  Happy   end  of  one  month  you  will  be  harvesting  a  bald  rock  which  once  hosted  the  caulerpa!!                  

   Chuckle  Well  to  be  honest  currently  i  am  getting  some  good  growth  in  one  my  caulerpa  sumps  with  ample  no3  level  and  24hrs  cfl  lighting.  But  anyway,  i  just  wanted  to  tell  him  the  point  of  excess  nutrients  plus  wrong  light  and  no  uptake  =  unwanted  algae  and  clear  the  myth  of  only  wrong  light  =  unwanted  algae.
