I hardly consider posting something with uncertainty (the I doubt, shows you aren't sure) as posting wrong info. I am glad you are happy with your anemone. The condy is a carribean anemone, that does not host clownfish (tell that to several tomato clowns and a maroon clown I once owned ), but I think there have been documented cases of some gobies or blennys hosting in them. Might want to research symbiotic relationships with this anemone, you might be able to see something really cool...

I knew when I bought it it was not a host.. I have sumwhere a article where it tells me some of the clowns that have worked. Might looked into that but for now this is good enuf.

I can say tat Condys do climb the glass! I bought one that was attached to the glass of the stores tank! He looked really cool on the back of their tank. But I guess he likes where I put him better because he hasn't moved much since I placed him in the tank on a piece of live rock. I think my lighting(PC 165watt) is better than what the store had it under.
I've been feeding it frozen krill, he seems to like them! How much should I feed him? I haven't given him more than 1-2 krill at a time. I've only had him since saturday, so I think he has had a total of 3 krill so far, but I want to keep him happy and full so he doesn't try to eat the clowns or anything else.
If I use grocery store shrimp should I get the raw unshelled? Or will cocktail shrimp work? If I fed shelled shrimp to I have to peel it, or feed it shell and all?
It is a pretty good size condy,I think? I'll try to post a picture tonight, He's not very colorful but he looked good and healthy and so far acts real healthy.

Maybe consider buying or making something for the ph.....so it doesn't eat your anemone if it decides to get too close.

I got raw shrim from walmart.



How long have you had it? a pic would be nice to tell its color and all that good stuff.


When the dealer removed it from the tank did its foot contract or do nething? Also when you touchd its tentacles were they sticky?

Thanks

The shrimp MUST be raw.

Feed shell and all, even the legs. Cut up of course.

I to just got a condy this weekend, against my better judgement, however my wife talked me into it. My maroon clown has been looking at it, as if contemplating.

As is said it was against my better judgement since I wasn't planning on trying an anemone for a while and hadn't done a whole lot of research. Imagine my shock when I woke up in the morning and the thing was lying there all shriveled up. I thought I had killed it. After some quick internet research I found out, they do that and sure enough some hours later he began inflating himself again.

Wish me luck, its amazing what a woman can get you to do, even if you know better.
