    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...

    Today I picked up an LTA from my LFS. After a year with this tank, I figured I was ready. Now it's in my tank, is not attached to anything and slightly closed up, as I would expect a new addition. However, my peppermint shrimp and bigger tomato clown seem to think it's food. They look like...

    Hello folks .. just a quick question .. Our lta refuses to stay planted in the sand but noticed it has taken its foot and stuck itself to a LR piece .. Our LFS that we got it from told us the orange base needs to be buried and it seems I can't find a happy medium via online articles about this...

I put him in about 4 days ago... And I've noticed that his tentacles are shriveling up and he keeps laying on his side and...

    Hey everyone! I purchased a 3inch long tentacle anemone a few days ago and I'm having troubles getting this thing to place his foot down. I have 4 T5ho bulbs, 3 to 4 inch sand bed(just depends on where the clown moves the sand....) I know they get large and it should be fine in my 55gal. I...

    So I just bought a LTA yesterday and put it in my tank. Its about 10" across and really pretty, light orange with green colored highlights in actinics. After I put it in I noticed that he came with an anemone crab. Cute lil booger and a nice hitchhiker. So this was my plan after talking to...

    Recently brought a LTA into my tank, and he hasn't really settled, he's sticky to the touch, ate a brine shrimp gel last night, doesn't seem limp, tentacles are fully inflated and it responds fine, and the foot seems to be fine. Water Params seem to be okay. Tank is over 2 years old and a light...

    Hello friends, I got a "blue" LTA 3 days ago. It was looking great for the first two days but this morning when I looked at it it looks awful. Is it dead, sick? What happened to the poor thing? I thought it was upside down but its not...Any thoughts or suggestions would be so appreciated...

    I got a LTA on Thursday and it seems like its tentacles are not as long as when i first bought it. Am I suppose to place it on my rockwork or will it do that on its own? (currently behind my rocks and on the sandbed.) It has been eating fine no problem there. My Nitrates are 10 but that seems to...

    http://www.thereeftank.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=90944&d=1336276907 Can someone ID this guy? It was sold as a rock flower anemone but Im not sure if thats what it is. The coloration makes it look like a RFA, but the tentacles are a lot longer than of any other RFAs Ive seen. Ive...

    Should I use my magnet tank scrubber on the back of my 20 gallon or should I leave the rear alone to enhance my reef atmosphere. This is a very new tank 1 week and I already have 2 occelaris and an LTA surviving in it. They are doing very well surprisingly and I've been feeding my LTA Hikari...
