I did look it up and I thought my lighting was enough. And I know I have the flow. But from what u all say, I am doomed to fail lol this sucks cuz my maroon clown is in love with this thing

Pc lighting just sucks.. from personal experience my gbta didn't do well with a 4 bulb t5 fixture.. I would hate more for it to die than take away the clowns new buddy.. clowns will host anything tho, even a rock.

If you are taking it back dont try to pull it from its rock, if you tear its foot it will likely be fatal. If its on a small rock take the whole thing and see if they will trade you for another rock if you want. If its on the glass gently blow a power head to the foot and it may start to let go. If you explain your situation the salesman will probably tell you people on forums are idiots and dont have as much experience as them.. at least thats my experience. .. just remember we're here to help, not make a profit.

You can't just move a nem, for one you would risk damaging it and for two it will move where it likes. Too dangerous a move I think. You could try and persuade it by giving it too much flow - it may move on its own...

I would just get stronger lighting. You are going to want to do this eventually anyway. I would not suggest trying to move the anemone.

The victims are our oceans treasures. Everyone wants an nem, but they have no clue that there are no BTA that are white or yellow, which means no one is doing research, they just want one, no clue to what they need as far as conditions or lighting, I so love nems, and it makes me sad that the industry keeps harvesting them because LPS keep selling them to people who do not know that a white nem is not good. (90) percent of all reef forums questions can be divided into, BTA, Tangs, and Mandarins, the 3 hardest creatures to keep in an enclosed environment, but the most sought for as a new reef keeper. Makes you want to throw in the towel, hopefully someone is listening :-} OK I am off mu soap box, going to go and enjoy me reef

Personally I Thank you for any advice ( and others here as well ) . You responded to a thread I started a few days ago about adding a NEM to my current tank and questioned my lighting as well and your response might not have been what I wanted when you warned me that my LED light would not support a NEM , I do however have a MH light that would work for me. Good light , bad light not really the issue here but it is your ( what do I call it ; Constructive Critism ) that weather people want to hear it or not should at least reconsider what they are doing and do the reasearch necessary.

I am still looking to add a NEM but have done some more homework on the subject , without your input that might not be the case.

Thanks again to everyone here for all the help and valuable information.
