Re: GOOD INFO ON ANENOMES #3
Two tips re anemonies:

i. Don't buy one until you're tank is at least 1 year old with the req'd parameters all stable for at least the previous 6 months.

ii. Don't add an anemone to an aquarium with un-protected powerheads....a timebomb waiting to go off.


I give this advice with the utmost respect for both the animal and the potential keeper, too many shops sell these wonderful creatures without asking any questions about the potential purchasers tank.

Re: GOOD INFO ON ANENOMES #4
hehe, of course they dont. They either have no idea what they're selling you, or they're out to make as much money as they can... sell you an anemone... dies a month later... you go buy another thinking you just got a bad one.... its a great business model, not so good on ethics though :)

Re: GOOD INFO ON ANENOMES #7
Hi, I haven't actually read through the advice link yet. but you might be able to answer this question alot quicker than me reading the article.

Which ANENOME would be suited for a pair of Maroon Clowns. The Clowns would be in a 500l 4 month old setup. I know you said wait a year. But I've had no fluctuations since day one. Plus I will not be getting an ANENOME for a few months yet.

Many thanks.

Re: GOOD INFO ON ANENOMES #8
Awesome article. We met our first failure with a Sebae anemone and we had no idea that it was so difficult to maintain. We may take another crack at an anemone due to the great info in this article. Thanks for sharing!!!
