Think I might try an anemone!?

Well I've wanted one for a while but am concerned about them wandering stinging everything and the fact that they are rather difficult to care for.

I think I actually need to get one if I plan keeping my 2 clowns and/or my frog spawns and alveopora. My clown host in these corals and have damaged the frogspawsn on several occasions. My alveopora is really getting annoyed and does not extend it's polyps like it used to....so I"m hoping an anemone could help solve this problem.

At work I can get a bubble tip, rose or regular, LT, Sebae or carpets. Any recomendations that would have the least chance of harming any or my corals if they decided to sit on one while I was away at work?

Your going to want a bubble tip, rose or green whatever you prefer. When there happy they stay put, and are one of the 'easier' anemones to keep. Also percs will host them, but theres no gaurentee. A carpet will get very large, and a LTA needs halides for it to do best. Where as BTA need lower light PC is fine, and they may even split.

I have halides so lighitng is not an issue, size isn't really an issue either as it will be transfered to a 200g in the next few weeks/months. Do you know if they are all about the same in terms of causing damage to corals?

IME, they are all pretty nasty, although I think carpets tend to be one of the worst. Neither my BT or Sebae anemones have moved since a few days after adding them about 10 months ago. In fact the Sebae stayed exactly were I placed it! I would go w/ something the Perc's naturally host in. Here is another compatability chart http://lib1.store.vip.sc5.yahoo.com/...mbioticMap.htm Good luck.

These are also some of the most difficult anemones to maintain.

I think you can manage it Jamal-188, sixline SEEMS assumptive, and ready to doubt your competency (and first your lighting)? I have had no problem w/ the Sebae I'm keeping, I do the same for it as the BTA.

Yea jamal don't listen to me. Instead lets mix to different anemones in a tiny 29 gallon. MT79 SEEMS to know everything about anemones, and calls a year a SUCESS!

Thats great that you have halides, I never assumed you didn't I was simply explaining that BTAs do fine under PC so lighting isn't so much an issue. I still recommend a BTA over the others.
