    We have a Snowflake Eel and just purchased a bubble tip. Our question is will the eel eat the anemone or vice versa? We know that the bubble tip wanders and we can't find him...mind you...we haven't torn the take apart to find him yet...because we don't want to rock the world of the other's in...

    Hello again. I have a Rose Tip Bubble Anemone that I purchased about 2 weeks ago. I was inexperienced and purchased a bleach Rose Tip because I thought the pink and white looked exotic. I now know this was a bleached anemone. For the first few days it opened up daily, but also deflated...

    Okay, so I've had this large GBTA for almost two months now. Everything has been great with it. It eats readily( It eats almost every day because of the gold striped maroon clown that hosts it and I target feed it twice a week), it shrinks up/inflates on a regular basis, and while it's mouth...

    I have a anemone in my tank and I have a few questions about him. My pair of O. Clownfish have hosted with it within a day of it being in my tank. I read online that if the anemone has clownfish hosting with it, you do not need to feed it? I was thinking maybe I should still feed it anyways...

    Hi Everyone, I am thinking of setting up a tank specifically for any type of anemone and I was wondering what the requirements are to keep one in a tank. I was wondering if anyone could explain what filtration to use and whether not to have power heads. What size tank do you need? Can any reef...

    I got a long tentacle anemone about two weeks ago. I looks healthy but it has not found its "happy place". Today it has fallen into one of the caverns that my goby has dug. Do I get it out of there?

    I have had this anemone in my tank for several weeks and it has been to be doing excellent. My clowns paired with it almost immediately. The last 3-4 days it started sagging and not expanding fully. I assumed the clowns were smothering it so I moved it into an in-tank acclimation container. It...

    I recently acquired an anemone from a friend (his tank's water parameters were all over the place). I acclimated the anemone for 1.5 hours (floated and dripped). I placed him on the bottom between some rocks. I watched him for the next 15 minutes and he started to float off the bottom and crash...
