  1. Hello Reefer! When I only started my first tank, I always though that if I add live rock to it, I might get parasites with it and that's why I didn't like the idea of adding live rock to my tank. After some time, when I got my 3.6 gal Nana reef tank, I did add a purple live rock. It had lots of small tunnels on it and lots of crevices and holes. I liked it and added it to my tank(even though I still wasnt sure). In a while, I would notice tentacles and I found out that I had brittle stars. Later I would also find green star polyps, baby anemones, and feather dusters. I would find exotic and expensive worms on that rock. So if your not sure whether you want a live rock or not, you should definitely get it and don't worry, live rocks mostly don't carry any harmful parasites, they mostly carry some really nice additions to your tank.?

    Both tanks are saltwater. In both of them, I also have seaweed from the beach and snails that live on rocks and they clean so much better than other snails like turbo snails. In my 3.6 gal tank, I also have a shrimp that buries itself in the sand. I also found this shrimp at the beach. The 100 gal tank has been running for a year and 8 months now and the 3.6 gal tank has been running for about 4 months now.

    Hello dear refers! After I got my 100 gallon tank in my living room cycled, I got a 3.6 gallon Nana tank for my room. That tank is actually not a saltwater tank but a freshwater tank. I set it up and added saltwater only from the beach and sand from the beach and after some days introduced some corals and my favorite clown and a live rock. It works so good and everything that lives in that tank loves it! I keep on finding more and more living things on my live rock like brittle stars, baby anemones, feather dusters and other worms. I don't know but the little sump that was already built in the tank works so much better than in my 100 gallon tank! I somehow even got coco pods in my tank and the clown keeps on eating them off the glass. You guys definitely should try getting the water and sand for your tank from a local beach because it is already cycled and you wouldn't have to cycle everything again. You can right away introduce living things into your tank cause the sea already cycled your sand and water for millions of years. ?
  4. I have a relative that has a huge 200 gallon tank. He tried pairing those two breeds of clowns but the clowns acted aggressively to each other and eventually one died after the other one chased him around the tank. You better get a pair of only one type of clown fish because clown fish don't really like other clowns that aren't the same species.
  5. The Maroon clown does nip at the anemone tentacles at times. But now they are getting along better and the clown sleeps in the nem at night and hosts it like crazy. I guess it wasn't used to seabaes because I know that this clown grew up with only bubble tips. Thanks for the reply. ?
  6. Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure what actually happened but it's all fine now. I just noticed new baby ones so I guess it was just growing.
  7. Thanks for the reply. I did feed my anemone and the clown didn't take the food away. Also before buying it, I checked his foot and tentacles and he was all healthy.
  8. I have a 100 gallon tank with good lighting and water parameters. I recently added a green star polyp to my tank and it was out and perfectly fine but at that time, my blue anemone started moving around the tank and accidently stung my green star polyp. The star polyp is now closed for the 3rd day. Did the anemone injure it and why is it closed for so much days in a row now?
  9. After my green bubble tip died, i went to my local pet shop and got a blue sebae anemone(kinda bleached). My maroon clownfish tries to host it with its side but when it touches it, it quickly swims away. Does the anemone sting it too much?
  10. I have an 100 gallon tank in my house and recently i bought a green bubble tip anemone and a lightning maroon clownfish as a pair. The anemone was healthy and i fell in love with it. I dont know the reason but after two weeks, the anemone started loosing color and eventually got flipped inside out so you could see his guts.(it died) Anybody have any ideas why it died because i also have a rose bubble tip and it didnt die.( both anemones were in my aquarium at the same time) and only one died.
