  1. Anemones
    Hey everyone, So when I originally put in my beautiful Coral Anenome, I placed it on a horizontal piece of rock about 2/3 the way up my tank with a TON of flow. Obviously, this proved to be too much light and it moved to the back of my huge piece of LR and seems to be doing fine; fully...

    My Duncan Coral is growing. It has 4 or 5 new little heads on it and I don't know if I should move it or not. It likes the spot it's in and is thriving but I don't know if there is enough room for him. What do you guys think?
