It'll open up possibilities for additional fish and corals that I couldn't add to a smaller tank. This will be my tank of firsts. First sump, first ato, first large tank, first skimmer, first tank move, first time plumbing, etc. It's going to be a journey and I have a lot of new exciting stuff to learn along the way.

    Cloak anemone care

    I recently found a red flat clawed hermit crab and then a cloak anemone attached to an empty shell at the beach. Acclimated them to my tank and they soon became friends. My tank is very new, just finished the cycling process and these are my first creatures in it. It’s been about 2 weeks since I introduced them to the tank and the anemone seems to be vibrant and lively but I have read so many posts about how anemones need to be in older tanks with optimal lighting and water quality. Is it too risky to keep? I am conflicted because I know anemones need specific care but this kind lives on the back of a bottom feeder with ever-changing lighting, water quality etc. in its natural habitat. I’m a first time reefer any advice is appreciated

    Is my anemone dead?

    Tank 13.5 .25 ammonia 0 on nitrate and nitrite temp 78 tank 3 months old 2 clowns 1 diamond spotted (the devil and hate him) goby 5 snails 1 cleaner shrimp i think I starved it, was feeding reefroids once a week. Last week it turned this purple and wasn’t inflating. I got a shrimp and spot feed it, it ate the small piece of shrimp. It hasn’t recovered back to normal since. The attached picture was after I removed it from the rock to smell if dead, no it just smelled like salt water. Idk what to do. I upgraded the pump for better flow and light. I started (after I saw he was sick) doing some iodine drops, read it’s good for zoa. Question or advice, how can I bring it back? Or should I just remove? And not buy another one till I am ready? idk looking forward guidance I will admit I failed it

    how much rock

    what is the bare minimum of reef saver rock i can use to aquascape a standard 20 gallon aquarium. filteration should not be much of a concern as i have a canester filter packed full of bio media rated for a 70 gallon and will upgrade to a sump very soon, and i have a 1.5 inch sand bed. i was recommended 0.5 kg/ 1 lbs per gallon but can i go much lower than that. its a fish and invert only system and i will not be adding coral as its illegal in my area. thanks!

    Bubble Tip Anemone Advice

    Hello reefers, I have come across the opportunity to obtain a bubble tip anemone for pretty cheap and was wondering if it would be worth looking into. I have a 25 gallon AIO peninsula that has two clowns, a royal gramma, and various inverts and soft corals. Unfortunately, I have been experiencing a bit of a diatom bloom, most likely because my tank is not fully established. If I were to get the anemone, it would most likely be next weekend. Would it be okay to purchase the anemone this early, or should I wait until the diatom outbreak has ended? Feel free to share any personal experiences or advice. Here is a link to my tank journal:
  8. I have a 22" tank and I used to have only led light, then I added T5, at fisrt everything in the tank liked it, corals loved it, but after 4-5 months later only the anemones are starting to act weird, as I turn on the T5s some start to shrivel, not right away but within hours, I also notice that some zooxanthellae is release (at least i think that's what it is) they used to poop normal pieces but now is brown see-through tissue, everything else in the tank is ok, I do waterchanges every week (i mean it). I also wanted to add a Gyre XF330 that I bought but I feel like it's too strong the slowest setting is 20% and that was upsetting the anemones as well so I took it off the same day I got it, kind of sad since it did help to lift off the food debri from the sand and hiding places. Also sometimes while deflating the anemones open their mouth and sometimes release food eaten a day before (feed once a week). The magnifica since to be doing better it had a bad time for a while but I set it up on top of rocks and it likes it, seems to be the only one to be fine with or without lighting. The bta in middle used to be bigger and very bubbly. ANY HELP WILL BE EXTREMELY APPRECIATED. Tank species: Anemones; magnifica, 4 bta, 2 torch, 1 hammer, 2 galaxia, zooas, 4 gorgonians, 2 leather, 2 polyps, Duncan, mushrooms, sponges, pulsing x, and 3 mantiporas. Clean up crew: emerald crabs, anemone crab, sand starfish, clams, bumblebee snail, and blue legged crab. Refugium: pods, chaeto micro and gracilaria.

    Looking for pests

    I'm testing some setups out and I'm looking for a couple of things. Anyone know where I can get Majano Anemone or Ball Tip Anemone (specifically strawberry)? Does anyone have any that they'd be willinf to sell? Also looking for some algae, specifically Dictyota. There are some others that people don't like that I'd be down to have.

    Clown's Nuvo20

    I lucked out to get a 10g IM with the Skyye light used for $50. It had been used for 6mnths for a freshwater tank. It was in excellent condition. We made a pedestal stand for it out of 2x4's and special grade plywood used to make tractor trailers. This stand is solid and very heavy! Equipment 10g Im Stock pump Spin Stream Nozzle Skyye Light 10k 50/50 Caribsea black hawaiian live sand 80% dry rock/20% liverock I cycled the tank with just the liverock, no dosing of anything. The tank took 6 weeks to cycle. I had a favia brain in the tank because it had been in my 15g but was attacked by peppermint shrimp so I had to remove it. It was in bad shape. After the first waterchange we added a few hermits and snails. After a month we added a leather which was a carnation leather. Upon finding out the difficulty in success with this coral I brought it back to the store. I didn't want to take the chance and lose a coral in such a new tank. My first fish was a purple firefish. it was added about 2 months after start up. It was absolutely beautiful and such a great fish.

    Fluval evo 13.5 Progress

    This is my just over a year old fluval evo , it was started around the 14-15th September of 2019. The tank has been few a few ups and downs and at one point I had to completely restart (around July) Everything in the tank apart from the fish and a few rocks are brand new , I just decided to take out all the rocks and sand due to a stupidly bad algae problem and start again. Im currently running an AI prime 16HD on David Saxbys settings and a nero 3 which has random flow 24/7 I also have duct taped the original fluval light onto the first chamber to make a DIY refugium with a bit of chaeto No skimmer , No UV , No dosing , just an ATO heater and pump in the back chambers. I would say I have around 40 different frags of coral in the tank right now , it is completely mixed. I also have 2 bubble tip anemones , 1 rose and 1 more yellow / rainbow. Il try post updates every month or so just to keep tally of how its doing. EDIT: Forgot to mention husbandry , dosing or feeding Currently I feed pellets twice a day and reef roids 2 times a week I dose Red sea AB+ every day according to the recommended amount I dont dose anything like magnesium calc , alk I just have an ATO full of rodi and I do a 20-25% waterchange every week

    Anemone Jar Inquiry

    The popularity of jar reefs coupled with the video below is inspiring me to create a desktop biotope with just anemones. I used to have a bunodosoma cavernata in a 2 gallon while in college but that was almost 40 years ago when undergravel filters were the norm. In the past decade I have seen others keep condys, rock flowers, bubble tip and even min-maxis in nano tanks, but there is something intriguing about going smaller and trying an anemone in a jar. I came across this article and would like to do something similar but with a different, more colorful anemone. https://www.reef2rainforest.com/2017/10/31/when-i-say-aiptasia-you-say-pest-at-pratt-we-say-pet-instead/ First choice would be the red beadlet anemone (Actinia equina) but they are impossible to find in the USA. Waratahs are also difficult to locate and they are cold water, therefore not being considered atm. So my search is leaning towards majano's... a green one or one with colored tips would be ideal. The closest marine LFS is about 80 miles away so I really don't have the option of browsing through their live rock in the attempt to find one. I am currently searching online and the reefing community for a colorful majano, but since most hobbyists kill them on sight my attempts to locate even a single specimen have not been productive.

    Jack's 10 year old 20g Tall

    In the last 4 years, my 20g tank has logged more than 2,000 miles in 5 different moves, has visited 8 different states, and two of those moves were half way across the country. Needless to say, this has taken quite a toll on the tank. It's been up and running in some state for some eight years now, and finally has a permanent home now that we've bought a house. With any luck, things will flourish, uninterrupted. SPS have been back in the tank a few months now and am hoping I won't have to sell them off and move again like I usually have to do! Equipment: Tank: Standard Petco $20 20g Tall - 24x12x16. Lighting: Radion XR30 Pro (G1) with upgraded wide-angle lenses @ 45% (Schedule: https://pastebin.com/c1PYMT4y) Flow: 1x MP10 and return pump @ 100% in Yellow Mode Sump: DIY 10g Standard Petco $10 10g - 20x10x12 with 2 chambers Skimmer: Bubble Magus C3.5, offline for months and my coral is loving the extra delicious organics ATO: Avast Marine with Aqualifter Temperature: Ranco 111000 Inkbird Controller connected to old titanium heater Overflow: HOB CPR CS50 with Aqualifter siphon and DIY float valve relay on return to prevent accidents Dosing: 1/4 - 1/3 gallon of 27.5% 42% saturated Kalk in RODI per day. Keeps Alk between 8.4 and 9.2 over the course of about 20 days., between 6 and 7 to slow down growth to make it manageable. Live Stock: Fish: 2x Percula Clowns and one Hoeven's/Melanurus Wrasse Coral: Acros, Montis, Acans, Favia, Stylo, Birdsnest, Merulina, Blastos, Chalice, Platygyra, Ricordea, Zoas, Palys Nems: Two RBTAs (mother and baby), 2x Mini-Maxis Everything has been set up for ease of maintenance and being able to run for a week if I'm travelling since the amount of time I have to dedicate to my reef comes and goes - after 8 years, I just want it to be as simple as I can get - no more experimenting with gadgets or fads, just simple, basic husbandry. It seems the only time I am working on my reef these days between work, climbing when it's warm and snowboarding when it's cold is when the weather is crappy and I'm stuck inside. FTS on 4/30/2020: Ugly birdsnest sold and scape moves made! FTS on 6/20/19: FTS on 2/19/19: Here's a FTS from where I am starting from, again, in it's beat-down glory 10/4/18: All things considered, it's looking pretty decent having spent more than 2 weeks of it's life packed up just like this: While the tank is starting to really look good inside, it's not looking so good from the outside: This is where everything began - many, many years ago. All but two pieces of rock in my tank now started here:

    Type of anemone

    hi, So, I went to buy 2 life rocks and they came with 2 anemones, they are small and doing great but I don't know what type they are, one has like neon dark green at the bottom and red/brown/purple tentacles it doesn't look like it might be a bubble anemone although sometimes a few of its tentacles at the bottom looks like it might, and the other is I think a rose anemone but when I got the rock at the aquarium it look like the foot was stretched and the tentacles where very stretchy and thin, but since it has been in my tank is just fluffy. Also how far do they need to be one another? Will the clown fish host both anemones? How big the anemones grow? I appreciate the help and time for your response 🙂 I hope the attached url can be shown it is a short video of how they move. http://20200921_113520 | Flickr https://flic.kr/p/2jJPvYg

    Hurt Carpet Anemone

    Hi My Carpet Anemone got caught in my wave maker. My water was all cloudy, I thought he was all mulch. Switched off the system took him out, now he is in a quarantine tank. Give me tips to ensure he survives. He has shed off the hurt parts in jello stands. He keep shrinking and expanding. I wanna know when and what to feed him. I wanna ensure his recovery.
  20. My clownfish is hosting a purple tube as seen in the picture and is 2 inches max from the anemone but won’t get in. Any ways to help them find it? He is currently touching the anemone with his tail as well but refuses to jump in it.
  21. Hey guys I bought an already established tank (nano reef) in the fluval evo 13.5g. I have 2 questions one more important than the other but wondering on both. so I transported the aquarium with a few inches of water in it and the inhabitants in bags (1 hermit crab, 2 slugs, 2 bubble tip anemone, 1 anemone shrimp, tile of gsp, some zoas, live rock and live sand) the live rock was in a 5g pain with the tanks previous water. I also picked up 2 clownfish and 1 blue damselfish my brother bought me a hammerhead coral. so got home and added the previous water to the tank, then let the bags all float and acclimate. Then made more salt water and checked salinity, all salinities of previous, new and the fishes marine store water similar within .01-.02 of each other. I slowly added the anemones clean up crew etc. I added a bit of the tank water to the fish bags then sat for 5 min or so and then just let them sort of swim out when they were ready. I tried following the directions best I could. so In the tank things look good, the coral is slowly opening one anemone moved completely and the other is ok same spot bit open but closing up maybe because it’s night now? Do they do that? my main concern is that the 2 clown fish are staying primarily in the one top corner. The blue damsel is sort of swimming back and forth from one rock arch to another rock cave and seems fine not going to the top at all. I don’t see anything particularly concerning about the clowns except they are mostly at the top and more in one corner. First question is should I be concerned? I want them to acclimate well and be happy and healthy I’m so paranoid can’t sleep. Is there anything specific I should watch for to catch any warning signs and help? second question I can’t seem to keep the back chamber same level as the main, it’s about an inch or more lower. Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong? Bonus question should I have the pump nozzles aimed more at the anemones and coral or above them, away from them? I feel like I did so much research and now I’m the moment I’m just panicked on night one praying everyone is happy inside! Help 😮

    2 clownfish and a question

    Hey guys, so I have a question that I would like some advice on. My 36g tank has 2 occerlarus clownfish ( fake percula, a green LTA and random assortment of corals. I want to know how you guys get your clowns to host a anemone or to atleast get 2 clowns to host it as one of mine hosts the anemone and another hosts a frogspawn/hammer coral ( I want to say its a hammer but I could be wrong ), and as well one clownfish stays away from the other even tho they aren't a mated pair or have done anything to make a hierarchy chain. ( I have a purple dottyback In the tank that makes it hard to add new fish into it ). http://imgur.com/gallery/E8Gn9DE Here are the photos of the clownfish/anemone and coral they host.
  23. Hi All, I am a Marine newbie. My Tank specs are as follows: 1. Dimensions:36*18*18 (Inches) 2. Age: 6 months 3. Current Live stock: 1 Royal dotty-back and 3 Red hermit crabs 4. Lighting: Radion G3 PROD. It is set with the predefined template that comes up while Radion for Soft/LPS corals. 5. Wavemaker: Turned off since yesterday 6. Water Params: a. Salinity: 1.024-1.025 b. PH- A little less than 8. c. Nitrate: 2 d. Nitrite: 0 e. Ammonia: 0.15 I have recently brought home a Rainbow Bubble Tip Anemone. It was in good condition with no damaged foot. I drip acclimated it for around 3 hours before introducing it to the tank. While it was getting acclimated, I saw it sticking to the bag in which it was brought in. Then I introduced it to my tank and placed it on the live rock yesterday. The flow has been turned down and I presently have negligible flow in my tank. Ever since I brought it home, it just randomly falls off the rocks often with its tentacles facing down on the sand bed. It is all closed up. I have been reading a lot about this behavior but have seen mixed responses about some saying it it is normal and other saying its dead. Hereby attaching some pictures for Advanced aquarist to answer. Before is a picture of the Anemone under T5 at the aquarium shop. After and After 1 images illustrate mine. All Help is appreciated.
  24. He freaked out and swam right into it for a second, got stung and swam away. He seems to be fine swimming around, but is stressed. he is around 2 3/4 inches. Any experiences like this for anyone? Any advice or tips to make sure he is okay? Thank you.
