Remember, anenomes can easily die in a new tank, and you need fantastic lighting thats why we are stearing clear of them

Awe darn! Oh well I guess I can still have my clown! Maybe once I get more into the hobby and have a better established tank I'll look into it more. For now that will be on the eventually list, or possibly the pass list. Lol.

Listen to me already making lists and I haven't found a darn tank yet!! Lol I'm still looking though!

Hey!! Ok, so we have turned both powerheads off, and the xenia is loving it!! Do we have too much flow usually you think? The xenia has grown 2x as big in just several weeks!!!

Also, how do clowns swim?? Ours like shakes his whole body? Kinda freaking me out..

Power outages i hope not we are usually OK? He says touching a large piece of wood Clowns do swim in a funny kind of way um how to describe it from memory,they swim in up and down on the spot type swim = nose up then tail up,then head down, tail down - does that make sense your coral may not like being in the flow if it seems happier with the pumps off? Maybe try placing it away from the flow abit more?

Hopefully not!!

Yea, thats what he does! And when he hovers he is often leaning to one side? Weird little dude.

Theing it, the xenia is on a rock, not a plug! I would move it if it was easier! We have angled the PHeads differently so hopefully that helps
