Pink Tipped Anemones? Updated: Is it dying?

I hear one of two things that they are a good beginer anemone, or that they are incredibly difficult. I also hear that they can live off direct feedings every 3 weeks or that they should be fed diced shrimp and muscles a few times a week. What confuses me the most is that some say these guys can live off low lighting conditions, and others say you need very strong lighting.

If anyone can help sort these inconsistantcies, I'd like to know the truth, I bought one earlier today.

Well...what kind of anemone is it exactly? Is it a Pink Haitian, a Florida Condi or another kind of anemone?

though it was sold to me as a pink haitian, i belive it is more likely a florida condi. the purple (pink) tipped arms are pretty predominant like the florida condi, plus mine lacks the orange base of the haitian

IMO they are not a good choice for a reef. They tend to "walk" all over the tank and will sting other corals you may have. They are also known to end up getting into your powerheads and that is just a mess. They can handle feedings once or twice a week. The more you feed it the larger it will grow. As for lighting I would say that 4-5wpg would be ok. I don't think you are going to be happy with it in a 20g tank though as I said it will walk around the tank. More times then not clown fish will NOT host in the condi. HTH

i have a 90 gallon, and the florida condi first walked around a little bit, until it found its spot. now it doesnt move, and my smaller maroon clown just began going in it yesterday, but it took a VERY long time, and as mentioned, they normally dont host, but there's always hope. and they will get quite large, the more you feed. just my 2 cents. . .

it does, physically, though i cant say colorwise, as the pics a little dark.

i just fed the clowns some emerald entree just a few minutes ago, and now (half an hour later) the amenome has just packed itself into a tight bunch inside the hole it rooted itself in. the tentacles are deflated and bunched in too. at first i thought he was dragging the food bits to his "mouth" but i dont think he is now

the tanks 76F and specific gravity is 1.023

is this normal for anemones to bunch up like this? sorry, no pics

They close up sometimes...My LTA does it every once in a while. How long have you had it in your tank? Did you acclimate it to both the water and to your lighting? How high up in the tank did you place it? Has it stayed there or moved?
