I would suggest raising your SG a few points. 1.024-25 would allow for a healthier system. The numbers you've posted are typical for a cycling tank and things should move along fine. As far as the filter pads, they should be cleaned or replaced to prevent build up of nutrient and reduced flow through the filtration system...

Cheers
Steve

I have 4x96w PC light on the tank with that particular anemone. Their addition to any tank should not be taken lightly. It is generally recommended to wait for the tank to mature at least a year before adding an anemone to be sure the tank is properly stable and able to support one. Personally, I waited 2 years before adding an anemone.

I would definately suggest you do your homework on anemone's. You cannot simpley add on to a tank and hope it does well. More often than not, they do not survive past the first few months due to collection damage or moreso, improper care.

Many different types of fish can be kept with anemone's providing they are reef compatible. Triggers, filefish, large angels and other invert munchers are a definate no...

Cheers
Steve
