Yeah I have no where to rehome it sadly! I'll try my best to keep everything cool! Anyways what do you think the other thing is? A small coral?

So I found out it is a type of anemone and I have another one on the other side of the lr! Everything is going good, hitchhiker fish is still alive and well! Just wondering what should I feed it ? I'm trying new life spectrum marine food

Watch out, it could be a pest anemone that you need to get rid of! They can spread quickly and take over your tank. Can you get another pic?

It's a Corynactis nem and isn't a pest to me. I'm not doing any corals or anything so should be good!!!

Nope. Corynactis "nems" are actually colonial anthozoans which are closely related to true anemones. They are tropical. There are several species and some are cold water while some live in warmer tropical waters.

So I just did a water change,

Levels are :
  • Ammonia : 0-0.25 ppm
  • Nitrite: 0 ppm
  • Nitrate: about 0- 0.25ppm
Do you think my cycle is complete or almost there?
