Has anyone had good results with a carpet anemone?

I have been looking at them for a while and wondered if anyone has had good results with them.

In a tank your size you should be able to get away with one. My buddy has one and it is an eating machine... Hippo tang, crabs, snails, horse shoe crab , other fish ect.... I bet that thing cost him a couple hundred dollars in food.. Food that was not suppose to be food.

I`ve heard they are pretty potent. That`s why I never got one. I`ve got a BTA thats on the journey of a thousand leagues.

I've had pretty good success with mine. It only ate my hawkfish. However, my boss's has eaten 3 Fox Faces and an Urchin. I've kept mine in my 30g for about 7 months now and it has almost doubled in size. But it does eat ALOT. I feed silversides and krill to it bi-weekly.

I'll post a pic later tonight.
