Ya, getting a nem that early is a bad idea. You said it is still alive and doing well?

 

How about some specs?

the air line and bubbles was so i could see where my current was blowing around, the one on the left is much more powerful then the one on the right! :)

 

 

 

My nems is still alive and well!!! :) The clown is not hosted in him, instead the clown found the darkest cranny in the tank and dug the sand down to the glass and is living back there.. comes out for feeding time

 

Ill post specs when i return :)

What do you have for lighting?

Marine Land LED fixture + T8 Marine bulb 6500.. has 6 White LED's and 3 Moon Blues (420)

 

http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=...IwAQ#ps-sellers

 

 

I'd probably think about both getting a new light AND getting rid of that anemone then. T8's and low powered LED's will never cut it for that nem, let alone coral.

 

Plus the link that you gave clearly states

NOTE: These LED Lights are only for Fish Only marine tanks or Freshwater low light planted tanks (crypts, anubis, java fern etc). It could also be an excellent light for a refugium system, but is not intended as a reef lighting system.

 

That light won't even handle a high tech planted tank. You'd get more light from a $65 Nova Extreme T5 fixture and have better bulb options.

Your nem looks like a condy, which is not a natural host of clowns and most likely will not end up hosting the clown.

I understand the link said it wont, the Nem's has been perfectly content for the last almost 3 months, no signs of anything bad.. :) supposed to be a pink tip nems.. but that LFS dont know too much on there nems they are all in the same tank.. It does appear like a pink tip though..

 

 

My corals are thriving TBO.. my "Toxic Zoa" has 2 polyps in the last 2 weeks (started with 3).. of course GSP is getting rediculous new polyps... My pink Zoa isnt doin to awefully much.. just 1 polyp of that.. And the other one I have i just got last weekend, and its fully open.. i just got the "blue" colony and they are all open and look happy and healthy

I hear ya. I'm not trying to flame you or anything. But keep in mind that it is a really low level of light and you are on the edge of barely getting by.

 

I wish you the best of luck. That just might work out for you. I would say that if it's been 3 months you probably would have seen some bad signs by now if you were going to.

:) Well i appreciate everyones good luck wishes.. im highly experienced with Freshwater and this is my first salt water endevour. I am on a tight budget so im trying to do what i can to get by for now. I would sooner give the nems back to the LFS if he was looking unhealthy rather then seeing him destroy my tank :(.. One other thing to mention is that my freshwater has a Fluourescent bulb and it sits just above my salt water tank, so perhaps that is beeming some additional light down on it..

 

Edit : I just redid the rockscape a bit.. should be a little easier on the eyes now when looking at it

I have been rather embarrassed to post a pic with the GHA out of control.. but it is starting to settled down and become reasonable again.

 

My Nems (George) doesnt come out until shortly after lights on period.. this is a normal process for him he is still around and in the back
