Hello everybody, my name is Vincent from Malaysia and I'm a new member of TRT. I'm also a new comer in this expensive hobby.

I have an anenomie in my tank and one day I discovered that the anemonie flooted on the surface of the tank. 3-4 days letter it sank again, anybody has any idea what causes it to float.

Thanks.

:confused:

Welcome :dance: :beer:

Anoenome's can move by inflating them selves and either walking or floating. Probably didn't like where it was at and decided to move to a better spot.

What type of lighting do you have?

first let me say welcome vtvinc!!!!

imo 30w of light in a tank that size is not enough. i would think about upgrading your lights. they require stronger light.
just my .02

I think I break all the rules when it comes to an anemonie. I have a 90g tank with 2 40w NO bulbs running about 5-7 hours. I have had him for over 8 months and he keeps getting bigger and bigger. If you plan on putting corals in your tank I would upgrade your lighting. I have seen many anemonies die from lack of light, I must have a green thumb or something - LOL.

Also WELCOME TO THE REEF TANK .....

I'm now looking for additional lighting for my tank and they come in many different colours. Is there a recommended colour light that a reef tank should be using ?

The light I have now is blue in colour, can anybody advise. Thanks.

If you can find bulbs in 6500k or better (higher K rating) that would help, even Halides no less than the 6500k and higher

With the 6500k, I would keep the blue to off set the "yellow" , if you can get 10,000k bulbs you might not need the blue, unless you like blue. The 20,000k in Halides are "blue", but just like most things in this hobby - it's subjective

HTH :D
