    Hello everyone! I am thinking about getting a carpet anemone. I know with normal anemone you should wait 1 year to add them, does the same apply to carpet anemones?

    Hey guys, just happened to notice that my BTA was splitting, and got a couple pictures of it. The clone isn't inflating yet, but hoping it will start to recover shortly. I added a new carbon reactor yesterday and I am wondering if that had something to do with the split. My main concern right...

    Hi all! I've lurked around here for a while, and your experience has really helped me maintain my tank and keep my fish happy and healthy! I've kept aquariums since I was very little, but didn't ever set up a real salt tank until I moved into my college's dorm this year. It's been kind of a wild...

    Hey guys, I'm new to thereeftank.com and Im not sure what I did to the last post. But yesterday night I noticed a hermit crab trying to change shells.

    Slowly stocking my 30g softy reef and just bought a few more (established) colonies today from a fellow hobbyist. Along with everything else, I ended up with a couple of tiny heads of purple tipped branching hammer (euphyllia parancora). It's skeleton had been colonized by metallic green star...

    Hey everyone! I just wanted a quick rundown on my anemone. My boyfriend bought it for me on 4/26 along with two Picasso clowns. It has YET to attach...and I know it takes time and it has to find a place it likes, I moved it a little at first but it seems to always move back to the front right...

    I don't know if I am in the right spot but I am not sure where to go for this question. I work at petco and recently bought a healthy little batfish from there. I knew he would die and it kills me to see fish captured only to die in this store. His body is a little smaller than a quarter. He is...

In this thread I will guide you how I trained mine I am aware that there...
  15. Anemones
    A friend of ours set up our tank this past summer and yesterday dropped off a long tentacle anemone for us. I wasn't able to educate myself on them before researching their care. As I started researching tonight, I'm nervous that it is "bleaching," although I'm not entirely sure what that...

    I need a little help with a bonzaii acro I have. The color is bad, faded at the bottom and brownish on the undersides of some of the branches. There are still polyps but they can only really be seen with just the blues on since they're neon green. I was told to put it more in the shadows down at...

    Hey guys I got a green encrusting Hydnophora about 2 weeks ago:p. It is doing very well, I put it in the top right side of my tank away from other corals giving it room to encrust without conflict ( for a while anyway). I was just wondering if I can get as many tips about this coral as I can...

    My bubble-tip had been in tip-top shape for several months. He moved around occasionally, but has finally settled in on a spot. He hasn't moved in 6 months. He has been an upstanding member of my tank for 8 months now. The past month, however, he has seemed to be on a slide, and I cannot...

    Several weeks ago I asked you guys for help identifying an anemone I found on some live rock. The anemone is doing suprisingly well. Better than I could have hoped for! It has been propogating like crazy! Generally, when a pet of any kind thrives, you just assume that whatever you are doing so...
