    For those anemone lovers out there, what do you use to cover your wavemakers? where did you get them and how do you attach it to your wavemakers?

    When I got a marine aquarium, I made it my goal to eventually create a reef system. I think the time is ripe to add the first addition to my currently reef-less system. A couple qestions about the nems........ No matter how hard I research, there's always conflicting information about anemone...

So i want to know everything there is to know about caring for...

    I bought a mated pair of clowns and an green bta from my Lfs 4 days ago, the first 2 days the anemone was fine. The clowns hosted it right away. I didn't see this to be a problem cause they were already hosting the green already at the lfs. One day goes by he moved to his spot and was looking...

I come home late last night and notice my anemone is hung on an overhang in my rocks prolly cuz I left the lights on to long. This morning I wake up and find it face down in the sand.. I...

    We'e had an LTA for about 4 months. When we got him, he was very big, about twice the size of a softball. Over the past few weeks he's been shrinking, and now he's maybe the 4 inches long and very slender whereas before he was round. I acclimated him over several hours, we fed krill, our clown...

    Hello, I just bought a bulb anemone and was wondering how best to take care of it. I have read a lot about this, but I wanted to get as much information as possible. When I added it to my tank yesterday it contracted, and is expanding little by little; is this normal? Also, how long does it...

    So, yesterday I was scuba diving at farnsworth back near catalina island and I went looking for some live rock =) I was look specifically for live rock with Coraline algae because, if you read my last post I PRAY FOR CORALINE ALGAE. So, i picked some three rocks and took them back home to put...

    Just bought an anemone over the weekend along with a clown fish. The clown seems to be taking to my tank quite well but the anemone took awhile to find a spot to stay put, but he finally stuck to a corner of the tank. He hasnt really seemed to come out yet tho he spends most of his time...

    Seems there have been more and more new tanks with nems in them lately...a trend that concerns me, as most new tanks won't support nems long term...I just read something by someone I trust and respect as being extremely knowledgeable (TDWyatt) and thought it might be good to re-post (although I...

    I am a newbie as you might have determined and I have this bubble-tip anemone. I have had it for a few weeks now with no issues until it decided to move all over my tank looking for a suitable location to hang out in since it didn't like my nice quiet spot I chose. Anyway, the anemone went into...
