I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Just read a couple blurbs on the Condy. It looks and sounds real similar to a Bubble Tip Anemone. The color variations are nice. Keep us posted on how it does.

I've picked mine up bare handed. They shrivel to nothing when they are touched. They feel like a blob of flesh, very funky...

Hmmm In my reading it says that clownfish dont live in this type of anemone. Is that correct? I was planning on a set of black ones.

I read Clownfish can adapt to this nem. I've seen Clowns hosting in Torch Coral and powerheads. If there's no "perfect" nem, they'll find the next best thing.

I didn't think it was possible but this thing has gotten huge when its all spread out. I fed it half a silverfish last night which it took readily but now theres a small heap of leftover half digested fish next to it. Is this normal? Do I count on cuc to clean it up or do I need to get it out?

tested my water and its perfect. Actually too perfect. No nitrates anymore. The only thing thats not good is the phoshate its at 2.0.

The piece was most likely too big to digest. I used to cut my silversides into little quarter inch pieces, otherwise my nem would spit it back out. I would remove the silverside manually if you can get to it.

Do you have anything for phosphate removal? I run a GFO reactor. Too high of phosphates will contribute to unwanted algae growth. You will notice excessive buildup on your glass as well.

I'll try to fish out the remains, its not much but its right near his "root" or "bulb".

I was gonna add a phos remover media to both my larger tanks, was hoping that would do for now. Are reactors expensive? I havent seen any or maybe I just havent been looking lol
