    Pick up this green tip bubble tip today for $20. Whole body is tan, no tears anywhere, mouth closed, had bubbles at the lfs, and they had it for a month. Acclimated it for an hour, it wandered all around this rock island all evening and has picked under this ledge in the shade for now. My...

    so 2 days ago i added a new bubble tip to my 220 gallon tank i put it as far away from the sebae as i could hoping it wouldn't wander to far from where i put it but guess what just checked the tank because i couldnt find it and its about 6 inches away from the sebae any suggestions

    Some sort of Sea Star is breeding in my tank. I was too nervous to take out the bigger ones, like 5 inches in diameter, but found this baby on the glass. Please identify it ASAP- theres 4 I can see, so there must be dozens I can't. Nanocube w. newly installed Radion, MP10, Nitrate Ammonia...

    I want to break the myth about mixing different clowns in the same tank. I have a 66 gallon tank that has been up for a year. I started my tank last July and decided to make it a predominantly clown and anemone tank. I've always thought the Fire Clown fish are cute, so are the Pink skunks. I...
  5. Anemones
    First anemone. It hangs out under a overhang. Is this normal? It's been here for about 2 weeks. Looks healthy. The pic I attached is not the best but it will give everyone an idea of its placement.

    I took over a tank from a man that was moving out of state. The tank was a 14 gal Nano. As you can see from the photos the last three months have taken a lot of time and effort to give these poor guys a good place to live not to mention breathe. During this time I found 27 empty turbo snail...

    I bought a nice carpet nem today that looked healthy in the store. It even had a clown that was hosting it. I got it home and acclimated it properly, then placed it in the spot I wanted it to stay(yeah right). It began to fly all over the tank bumping into other corals and even sticking to a...

    hello everyone i just wanted to know if my haitian anemone was ok because when i woke up this morning he was stuck on the glass and spilling like this somewhat smoke out his mouth is this normal plus the lights just came on when i took the picture...
  10. Reef Fish
    I made the foolish mistake of making an impulse buy at the LFS. I asked the guy for a host anemone for my false percula clowns. He steered me away from the bubble anemone to a huge and more expensive long tentacle anemone. I didn't realize until after I got home and did research that this...
  11. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    I've looked everywhere and can't ID myself! I'm pretty sure it's not majano but other than that no idea. Any ideas?
  12. General Reef Discussion
    so i got a little anemone who hitched a ride on a hermit, im not sure how to take care of him though, he is white with tiny pink tips. What should i do for this little guy? What do they eat when so small, less than a centimeter wide
  13. "Soft" corals
    Would a bubble anemone need a protein skimmer?
  14. The THINK Tank
    Hot off the presses, check your local library (probably need to check at a school w/ Marine Biology program). Interesting since we talk so much about anemones and related large single-polyped corals. Mechanosensitivity in the model sea anemone Nematostella vectensis Journal Marine Biology...
