    Hey guy, Fairly new to the reefing world- I have a 75 gallon that has been running for about 3 months now. Fully cycled with a handful of small frags and two juvenile clowns. Wanting to buy a bubble tip anemone for them to host, heard it is good to get it sooner than later so they can't find a...

    Hello, I have had these clown fish for over 2 years now in this tank with the same rbta's (almost 1.5 years) and they never host. I tried putting the pictures up around the tank with clowns but they never got the hint. I have decided I'm going to get serious and intervene. They are tank raised...

    Hi TRT, I currently have a Maroon clown fish hosting a GBTA. What is the likelihood that the clown fish will bother a hammerhead coral if one is added to my system(29 gallon tank). I did not want the clown fish rubbing on the hammerhead, I have heard this can damage the coral. Via the soft...

    Hi everyone, I don't usually post for help, but rather tend to lurk and use search more than anything else. But I can't for the life of me find any references to anything like this. The other day I bought an S. Gigantea anemone from local LFS after watching it for about two weeks in the...

    Well first my tankraise clown, which i thought would never host with anything, started hosting in my open brain. Since I have taked the open brain back to work because of its tissue tears the clown has been lonely. We got some small bubble tip anemones in at work about 2 weeks ago. I know its a...

    Is a 48" Tek Light with 8X54W T5 HO from reefgeek.com enough light to support clams and anenomes? Sorry if this has already been asked. I did some searching and couldn't find a definite answer. Thanks for the help!

    I was thinking about getting some but I think I read somewhere it is hard to care for is it true, and if it just needs some special lovings what do I need to do to accommodate it. They accept clowns as hosts right?

    Is there anyone around the Lakeland FL. area that has room for a very healthy and colorful Tomato Clown? She has been living all alone in a very large refuge eating all the pods and I feed her every night after the lights come on. She has been there for about 6 months. She really needs a good...

    I have just posted the beta version of a new Clownfish-Anemone compatability tool. If you have time and want to check it out, you can find it here: http://www.rettalbot.com/AquaSite/ClownfishAnemone.html. All feedback would be greatly appreciated before I start work on the final version. Thanks!

    I just watched my clowfish track down a pod and feed it to my rbta. One more reson not to target feed this guy. Since I have gotten my water quality better this guy is looking sweet. Thanks for all the advice TCMAS members.

    One of my hitchhikers on my live rock was a cute porcelain crab. What is a good host anemone species to introduce into the tank. Hoping for a theme choice out of the caribbean. Possibly, a flower anemone?? I have a huge rose bubble, but it is uninterested in this specimen. Help!!! Thanks, Alex

    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...

    Which fish like to feast on anemones? I am hoping to be able to host anemones and some predatory fish... are there any compatible combinations or should I change my plans?

    How long does it take for a clown to host. We just picked up a clown today and brought it home, with some snails (not nearly enough) and put them in the tank. They all look good and the clown has already ate. She hasn't gone to the anemone yet though. It is a condi anemone. I figure it could...
