My first anemone.

Picked up a green bubble tip anemone the other day. I put in the shade in the rockwork so the t5 to led transition wouldn't burn it. Don't really know a lot about them but I was kinda hoping my ocellaris clown would host it. If not that's fine too. Its a nice specimen and is responding very well to feedings. Does anyone know how long it will take to move out into the light? Here's some pics of it today.

You should always do your research before purchasing anything. Nems need a stable tank with pristine water conditions and high end LEDS (3 watt crees), 4 strip T5's or my preference MH. They will move where they want in relation to lighting, flow and water conditions. Good luck with it.

I did and I always do. I have 3w leds. The Guy at the lfs said at least 1 Watt less and they will be fine. They kept them all under t5. I do have a t5 ho fixture I could add to the tank but these leds are pretty bright. Just was hoping to learn something that I didn't know about them and to share my new inhabitant. Water parameters have been great on the tank for a while now.

I have recently added a BTA and it did exsactly the same thing. They can stay hiden away for weeks.

I carefully moved the rock it was attached to so it was facing towards me rather than away and down the back where i couldn't monitor it. It move slightly to a lower flow area with slightly less light and is doing great. 2 weeks in!

Just to add you should never move an anemone unless absolutely necesary. This is why i moved the rock rather than distubing its foot. Tear its foot it could die.

Yea I wouldn't try to remove it from the rock it was attached too. It looks kind wimpy now for some reason. I'm about to feed the tank though. I hope it does well.

I just got a gbta three days ago. Came in the mail risky move but came very healthy the first day it moved all over the place from rocks to sand bed even scaling the glass. But finely found a good spot in some low flow lower in the tank. He still moves around but stays within the area. After he found the spot he liked he bubbled out.
