New Condy Anemone

Picked up a condy today. Has already eaten, and looks to be doing well so far!

Hope you have enough light for it. That's pretty bleached. They won't stay that color either, provided they have enough light. It'll turn brown-ish when it becomes healthy.

I do happen to have metal hallides so I assumed that will be enough light for the condy to do well. The picture was taken on my iphone so it does make it look a little bleached. It has a nice purple tip on every arm(if thats what they are called) and a little more coloration than is shown in the picture. Emelinda, why do you want to remove it? Do they cause problems as they mature. I don't plan on doing much along the lines of corals so I figured this would be a nice way to add something to look at in my tank other than fish and rocks.

For a Fowlr system this condy wont really cause too many problems. although it will probably move around a bit till it finds somewhere it likes.

No problems.. Moved a little bit...IMO it just looks ugly now that it's "healthy"... What attracted me to it was the color when I first purchased it.. Somewhat like the way yours looks now
