    I got a Carpet anemone about a year ago. I had it in a 55 gallon with Decent lighting, but I had a problem and my tank nuked. The anemone lived through. When I got it it was probably 2.5 inches, it shrunk down to 1.5ish and I moved it in to a 220 gallon a month ago. I have no idea what kind of...

    First off, I’m new to reef tanks. I was in the store today taking advantage of early black Friday sales and saw a small 6” green carpet anemone. I thought it really looks interesting and the price was right so I bought it. It’s in my tank now. I know I should have done the research up front...

    Hi everyone, my husband got me the carpet nem I have been wanting for a while now to host my ocellaris clowns. At the LFS, she listed as a S. gigantea and looked to be tannish under their (crappy) lighting. They said she'd been there for a couple of weeks, she looked very healthy and there was...

    We have a healthy, happy carpet anemone who has eaten too many of our fish. We've had her for about 10 months and she's been healthy and sticky the entire time, but now 3 gobis (biggest was about 4" long) have met their demise, so we feel it's time for her to go. She's about 9 inches wide- give...
