Howdy! Welcome to the salty side.

I’ve read Bubble tips like 220+ but mine seems happy at 130 par. But then my nem is a walker. She moves when she wants and as often as she wants to drive me crazy

I have 5 nems. Started with 3 and 2 of them cloned. They dont move much anymore. They used to move when I had lower PAR. After I increased it to around 200 they stay in that area.
Maybe yours moves because its not that happy.

She could get to more par if she wanted. She chooses not to. This black widow nem is a wondered.if she moved further up the rock structure she could get all the par she needed.

How is that black widow? I’ve been thinking about getting one. I haven’t found a place yet that sells them pre dipped for bacterial infections.

I would like to know the light intensity for anemones.
Welcome!

Mine seem to like being in the middle of my tank's height, and here are my light parameter settings which seem to be doing well for anemones and corals, if this helps you at all:
