THe recommended minimum for either species is 30 gallons. I think even in a 46 you would be asking for one the find the other and sting each other. Nems generally don't handle the parameter swings of a 10 gallon very well. I have known people to kkep BTAs alive in smaller tanks but I would keep a very close eye on a sebae in a 10 gallon

I would agree...I would not add another to a 10g...it generally takes a long time before they show signs of poor health and then it is often too late...I just lost a nem in my 125 for no reason that I can figure out...the tank is 18mos old and very stable...it was a large nem and seemed very healthy until the last week...I have successfully kept a BTA in my daughters 24AP with a couple of clowns for about 6mos now, but I wouldn't do it again.

I chose a 10g because of the price to stock with coral and rock is low.. hopefully mine lasts. i'll upgrade to a 50g if this one crashes and turn it into a refugium for other things.

An anemone that keeps moving usually means the anemone is unhappy.
