I get frozen fish food(not sure what it is, I think shimp) and just stick my hand in the tank and make the food touch it's tentacles and wiggle it a bit, then it takes the food and eats it. I'm going to buy whole silverside fish though and just feed it half of one of those twice a week.

I believe it's Haitian Pink Tip Condy Anemone. It will move around until a spot to it's liking is found. It's aggressive.

It will feed on frozen food 2-3 tines a week in bits and pieces at a time. Large amount of food at once with cause stress.

Does this look similar. Lol

What kind of lights do you have and how long has your tank been set up? If it is a seabae it looks bleached, but i really think it is a condy.

I had a condy once upon a time and that looks like theone I had.

It's very important that you have pristine water, an established tank and super lighting for them. I ended up returning mine after 2 months because I was afraid it would eat my fish. PLUS it can get huge and take over a tank like mine did.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

My tank gets a ton of natural light. I only have one 48" artificial bulb I got from my lfs. The sunlight is sufficient correct?
