Bubble Tip Anemone tank maturity

Hello,

I really want to get a couple of BTA's for my clowns but I am not sure about maturity of the tank. The present tank is recent transfer from a 1year old tank so is this OK for tank maturity ? I only transferred Live rock and not water or sand.

I have been told to wait at least till the tank is 7 months old. Lighting is really important too. What type do u have?

I recently got a 120 W dimmable blue/white LED for a 40G bow front corner tank. I think it's sufficient from what I have been reading and probably too much.

It looks like my clowns need something to host and they are not hosting any of my other corals. One of the clowns is digging sand at night which is usually a sign of wanting to host something.

How long ago was the transfer? What was the previous and new tank sizes?probably want to wait a month or two after the transfer for the new tank to establish.

Transfer was less than a month ago from a 25G to 40G tank.

What about your filtration system? Is all that brand new too?

The filtration system was also transferred. HOB Skimmer, HOB mini refugium and 3 power heads.
Water is pristine as far as PH, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate is concerned.

I don't check for calcium, alk, phosphates, magnesium etc. since everything is thriving.

You could probably do it now, but monitoring thugs for a few weeks to ensure it doesn't spike up for whatever reason would be best.
