Anemones in Reef Tanks

All,

I was wondering what everyone thought about having anemones in a reef tank. I eventually want to have some sps and had heard anemones will sting the crap out of corals if you are not careful. Can someone please assist me in this as I want to give my 2 perculas a new home but also want a reef tank as well.

if u really want a anenmome i would add it first, let it establish a home, remember they are tough to care for and the best of us can have problems caring for them. they need good light and dedication. after it has found a good home it may be less likly to move however thats not a gurantee. and yes they will sting the crap out of corals if they do move.

On the other hand if u get torch corals or frogspawn there is a good chance your percs will host them and since they are corals they will not move.

My warty anemone, hardy though he is, has been a little under the weather today. WQ looks good, so maybe he was just a little hungry or maybe hung over from the clean water I added (after siphoning the tank/gravel) last night.

Remember that your clowns do not need an anonome to be happy in your reef tank. I have a rose BTA that my two percs hang out in, but they also play in my torch coral, hammer coral and hairy mushrooms. If yu are worried about having an anonome, I would skip it.

Well I am not sure but I have a 24" retro Aqualight 1x 65W 03 and 1x 65W 10,000k bulbs for my 29g aquarium. What would be your thoughts on this?

i would say your border line, if u want one i would try a bubble tip. i have one with the same lights on my 36 gallon, however it does tend to stay close to the lights. It's been a little over 2 years so far so good. he hasnt split but when i feed him often enougn he looks great if u want to see him i have a pic in my gallery. Good luck

I saw a BTA here in Petco not long ago that was $31.99. I guess that had I bought it, I would have gotten what I paid for like I did with the LTA.
