New anemones

I just Got 2 new anemones, they get along well, they were in the lfs tank and they were close to each other and had no prob. What I got was a green carpet anemone, and a brown with green tip long tentacle anemone, they are both healthy and eat as well, they eat quite abit, also my tube anemone is eating also The brown saddleback loves the anemones, Im going to wait until my perc goes in one, because they lfs said they only get wild fish.

Wow, congrats on another foolish purchase. Mixing anemones = bad idea, So now you have a sebae, LTA, BTA, carpet, and tube? In a 55, hmmm very responsible. If I were you I would return all the anemones but one, and BTA, and a carpet will be fine under VHO. LTA and Sebaes need halides.

Although I disagree with the overall tone of the reply, I do agree with it.

Yeah, seriously, dude. Just tell a person whether or not it's the best plan.

I actually have the lta and the carpet and the tube, the others went back to lfs along time ago, but the anemones has attached already and are doing fine. The lfs had like 5dif anemones in a 40 gal and they didnt have war, mine are fine, you always have to put down a tank that is fine. Oh btw, all the advice you gave me like the cc star isnt true, he hasnt knocked over anything and is completely fine. Also saying the two clowns will kill to death, that didnt happen. Having my way too many fish will crash the tank, nothing tragic has happend and it is doing fine.

What LFS encouraged this kind of thing? I know...way too many. I think some of the blame for such thing need to go to them. Although purchases should be researched by the hobbiest, the LFS should raise an eyebrow in this case.
Guess I'm lucky. When I inquire on a particular animal at my LFS, they alway give their opinion on compatability with my current inhabitants.

Interesting, can you find the thread where I said these things. I believe I said the CC will eat inverts.... and yes mixing clowns is a bad idea. I have a feeling those last 2 anemones died. As far as my advice being wrong, ill save it for those who appreciate it. Cause your LFS obviously has all the answers. I really loved the emperor angel advice they gave you... you know how it would be fine in a 55 gallon.

No, and the cc star didnt eat any inverts, did nothing, it just eats algae. I took the anemones back to the lfs because you told me to

This dosen't mean that they don't. There predatory by nature, and will eat any inverts they can capture. As well as corals, I have one that even eats aiptasia. If you want to do whats right, why not just keep one anemone?
