long tentacle anemone

  1. General Reef Discussion
    I have several questions I could not find definite answers to online about my new long tentacle anemone. Tank info: I have had my nano reef tank of 30 gallons for 7 months, my levels have remained fairly constant (always in normal ranges) since cycling my tank. Today's readings are Ammonia...

    Hey, everyone :wavey: just wanted to post a some updates on the well being of a couple of my inverts. Last month I found my banded serpent star in less than stellar condition. Silversides are a big no-no apparently as they can and will bust through the test of the starfish! :eek: he had a...

    Seymour has a 6" oral disc fully extended and about 3-6" long tentacles. He takes up the whole front left corner of our tank.

    2 days ago, after much research, I got a long tennacle annemone from my lfs. They anemone was very large and was gently waving in the water, looking very healthy. I brought it home and drip acclimated it for 4 hours. I placed it in my tank on the sand and turned the lights off for the rest of...

    This guy was mislabeled as a condylactis anemone so my mom brought him home for $10... My problem with this purchase (besides the Petco part) is that I believe it is bleached... VERY small... And we don't have the lights for it. Let the battle begin.

    I was wondering what Corals do you guys think would survive on this rock next to my anemone. Also this is my first anemone so I am new to their weird habits. Is it normal for them to close for 2 days and then open fully and looks nice until it decides to close again?

    Hey everyone, I recently purchased two anemones and a clam. I got a long tentacle anemone, a rose buble tip anemone and I still don't know the name of the clam. It's navy blue thou. Now, according to what I've read, both anemones and clam need lots of light and medium curent for them to be...

    We bought a LTA about 2 weeks ago at our local LFS. Originally when we brought it to our tank it stayed open the entire time but did not attach to anything. We had put it in our refugium with 2 baby Ocellaris Clowns to try to help the bonding process before setting them all free in the 75 gal...

    During the process of my last sand change and moving my tank to a different spot in the room I found just how long it takes to convince an anemone to detach. I used a powerhead to convince my LTA to detach from the bottom glass, but it took quite a while. So in the process of setting up my tank...

    Hello fellow reefers this is my first post on TRT. I recently had a very healthy (well so it seemed) yellow tang die in a matter of 24 hours. I currently have a LTA with two ocellaris clowns hosting in it. My 75 gal parameters have been in line no spike in nitrate nitrites ph was slightly low...

    I recently added a large long tentacled anemone to my 75 gallon tank. My Maroon Clown pair had currently been hosting a small bta, which is only about the size of the male, and only half the size of the female. About two weeks ago, I started seeing that its tentacles were getting shorter, and...

    I bought a long tentacle anemone a while ago, and put it in my 75 gal tank, it refused to stick. that tank had bad conditions, so i put it in my 30 gal tank, with a black saddle clown, a torch coral, and mantis shrimp(I know its risky) The anemone stuck pretty quickly, but then my clown decided...

    I recently bought a green long tentacle sea anemone. Anyone have any experience with these guys? My live stock in my tank consists of the following... Clown fish, some type of blenny, a long nose butterfly, a yellow headed jaw fish, an emerald crab, a skunk cleaner shrimp, a serpent starfish...

    Hi Guys, I am brand new to the hobby so please excuse my technical challenged. I have a purple long tentacle anemone. She's been with me for almost 3 weeks now and I have some questions regarding her behavior that worry me a little. At least once a day she closes up and changes water. She...

    Long time lurker posting at last - reading your discussions has been incredibly helpful over the last two years! We recently placed a long tentacle anemone into our reef system. About a week after it was introduced, our garden eel (we only have the one whom we rescued from the LFS) moved...

    Hi guys. I'm new to this stuff but so far my tank is looking good. Yesterday I bought a long tentacle anemone. I read that they like to be in the sand which I am confused about cause when I try to place it in the sand it doesn't seem to be able to anchor itself to anything and just rolls...

    Last night I picked up a strange long tentacle anemone. It is huge about 6-7" and has some serious weight to it. It is a shade of purple with white tips and white spots on the base. Very cool looking. Has anyone seen one colored like this? I have a RBTA currently and now the long tentacle...
