i coulnd't agree with you more on that one. if it had of been possible to keep both up and running, we would have. however, limited space meant one had to go immediately.
all the water, filters, etc were directly from the 125 gallon, so we didn't start from scratch which is better then nothing.
in the photo the white on the anemone isn't it's colouring, it was edited with a low grade photo editor and unfortunately doesn't look as healthy as it is. it's still growing and eating, has it's green colour, and is actually doing quite well. like i said, it's under T5's not T8's as i had previously thought.
thank you though.
