Clown hosting coco

My maroon clown seems to be hosting my coco worm, I'm planning on getting an led this weekend so I can have an anemone for her. Thoughts?

Wow, the feather duster doesn't close up in it's presence?

I can't wait for my maroons to get that big.

It's about a 2 month old tank since my move. Otherwise it's been up 5 years. The clown was one of the first in it so she got pretty big over that time. I had a mini cycle from adding new some new live rock like a month and a half ago though so do i have to wait again? My parameters are all good now. My lfs guy said he had LEDs I could buy not exactly sure on power and such but he said its good enough for the anemone and some corals.

That has got to be the biggest clownfish I've ever seen. Nice aquarium.

No offense but I would not take his word for it. I would find out what they are exactly and research them. If they are Marineland LED's I highly suggest NOT buying them. Often times LFS's try and push these out the door, I know my LFS does.

Ya not sure of the brand or anything I will have to look into it thanks. Just curious though; what's bad about marineland?
