Florida Condi Anemone

I'm thinking of getting a Florida Condi Anemone for my clownfish. What do you guys think? Good choice? Bad choice?

Also, what do you guys think of www.saltwaterfish.com? They have them at www.saltwaterfish.com for $6.99 with free shipping. However, every single item they have is a "wishlist item" that is sold out. What's up with that.

TIA,

$imple

I've heard of them hosting condi's but I wasn't sure if this is usual behavior or a rare instince. Anyone else?

A general anemone question, if they sting, how do you put them in the tank, and does the sting affect humans?

I was just checking out saltwaterfish.com and I believe that everything is on "wish list" because they are closed for the holidays. Maybe try after they start shipping again. I think that that will be on January 3. HTH.
Thanks for that website. I will be bookmarking that.

There is not a very good chance the condy will host your clown so do not count on it. On the up side...the condy is a hardy anenome that requires less light them most so it is a good choice in that reguard. Check with the rev, I think his clown and condy hooked-up.

I've had a few condy's and a few clowns and never had them host.... the anemone won't "sting" you ... it just sticks to your fingers......

It warns you at the bottom of injury or death occuring from a sting. Is this just a bunch of BS or what?

I think the injury or death could occur if you were allergic to it and had a bad reaction. They have to put a disclaimer on there so they can't be held responsible for it. Other than that, I have handled condy's before and never felt a sting. They are very hardy, and a good one start with.

OK...so regardless or not whether my clowns will host, do you guys agree it will be a good first anemone?

If there is a mated pair, and one of them adopts the anemone, will the other do so automatically?
