    Greetings all! Brand spanking new to the Saltwater world after having kept tropical freshwater off and on or many years. I just purchased an AGA 125 gallon "reef ready sort-of" used tank that is 72"x18"x22". The reason I say "sort-of" is that the holes are drilled (2 in each back corner...

    First of all I'd like to know what kind of anemone's we have. The first one we got just a few days ago. To be honest, not even the lady who sold it knew what kind it was but it was housing the clownfish (that we bought with it) perfectly and that's what we wanted so we bought it, After looking...

    I want to add an anemone to my 180 gallon sps tank. I have three Ocellaris clowns and I want to get something they will host. I tried a Ritteri anemone- Heteractis magnifica, and kept it for almost 7weeks before it started withering and died. Lighting is 3 250W MH (2 10K and 1 14K) and two...

    I bought a Ritteri Anemone - Heteractis magnifica from Livaquaria.com. I received it on Wensday last week. It hasn't moved agound the tank at all and alternates from haing cool inflated yellow tip tentacles to looking like a sack of crap sitting on a rock with very thin tentacles. My ocellarous...

    Although I really like my mated Clarkii Clown Pair, they gotta go in order to remove the Haddoni. First, the large female's bite is not pleasant as she guards the anemone and her eggs fervently. Second, before I got the large Clarkii female a mate, she used to attack my smaller ocellaris...

    I know that sounds dumb, but I was noticing my condi anemone has two real small short tenticals on one side. Is this just a sign of growth? Will a condi host a clown fish? I want one any way before long, but I was just wondering.

    So, I've got a couple of false percs and so far they want nothing to do with the bubble tip anenome. I've heard that if they are tank raised they may not have learned that habit. Do I have any better chance with true percs to get them to host the anenome? Anyone have any success with tank...

    The tank in the middle will have clowns and anemones. I need to know what would be the best. I want to get white striped maroons but I don't know if they go in the giant carpets. I want to get 2 of them and 2 sets of different species of clowns at same time. Maroons are my favorite but I am not...

    Hi, I am hoping to find some advice regarding adding H. Magnifica to my tank. It is a 55 gallon tank with live sand & rock about 50 assorted snails and hermit crabs. It is my intention to add a sailfin blenny, 2 Ocellaris Clowns and an anemone (hopefully H. Magnifica) to the tank. I have read...

    When i first started my marine tank my ultimate goal was to be able to care for an anemone called a ritteri (heteractis magnifica) which i think is a stunning creature, after plenty of research i've realised that my dream is way out of my league specially with my smallish tank and my lack of...
