My First Nem, A Rose Bubble Tip

I just got her last night. She seems to be very healthy and I think she likes my tank because she started comming out just minutes after acclimation and placement. She stayed where I put her over night only shifted a little. I guess I will see more about if she likes her perch today after the lights come on.
Both of my clowns were interested so that might be a good sign.
Any advice or info to help me keep this beautiful girl happy in my tank is much appriciated.

That's great. Hope it goes well. Mysis or cut up krill or silversides every once in a while would make it happy for sure.

I would avoid feeding the anemone. They get all they need from light. Feeding can cause stress.

Never heard this before. An anemone's diet consists of various types of meaty foods. Although not required because they also carry out photosynthesis, feeding doesn't have negative effects. They capture fish and shrimp in the wild, so I don't see how it can cause stress.

They have a hard time digesting large meaty foods. they almost always end up pooping most of it out undigested. This sometimes causes them to split as well.

What type of lighting do you have, nems do not need fed with the proper lighting, as far as stressing them out, it is all a matter of what the size ratios nem to food is. I do think chucks do stress them out as the bigger the piece the more energy they spend to try and digest it. A healthy nem will catch all the food it needs in the water column.

I agree with this statement. Had mine rose bubble for months and don't target feed it with shrimp, silversides or anything else. I just drop PE cyclopeeze for all my inverts twice a week because I feed my fish dry food and the inverts don't get to eat it.
