ya i got him from petco so he probably is pretty bleached. i have him under a Coral Sun actinic 420 17watts T8. and i have just started to feed him mysis shrimp as well. the guy i was talking to in petco said he had an anemone and thats what he fed his and it was really healthy. mine seams to really like them too. is this alright?
thanks for the warnings. ill keep open wounds to myself!!! lol
those are really nice looking anemones! hes mostly staying on the same rock now. but he is kinda moving around all over it though. i think he likes the location of it but cant find just the right spot on the rock.

Yes but never stick a hand with an open wound in your tank. Many toxins as well as bacterias that can really have an effect on the human body some even deadly.

Heres a few articles on some toxins/bacteria we often find in saltwater aquaria.

Yeah I know that, but unless you have gloves. Sometimes it can't be helped.

Sure it can lol. Dont put your hand in the tank! Lol, or use your none injured hand. or invest a few bucks in some gloves or a aquatic gardening tool.

Not many cases you 'need' to stick your hand in the tank. But its a risk you take, just spreading the awareness, lol.

Yeah, I get that. I'm not talking gaping cuts or anything, just knocks on fingers and underneath fingernails. I know you shouldn't put your hand in and I really should get some gloves.

I'm a mechanic so my hands are always cut up. Hopefully I have no problems in the future lol. The salt water does sting a little once in a while though lol
