Next question (lol I'm sure I'll have quite a few). I know they won't always host them, but they keep trying to go into my feather duster. I want to get an anemone for my clowns. Someone told me that one of the safest and slowest moving anemones was the carpet anemone. Is this true?

There is no guarantee that clowns will host anything. They may be just as likely to host a powerhead than a anemone. lol

A nem is not a purchase to take lightly either. They require an established tank with pristine water and an uber amount of light.

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

+1 I have a rose bubble tip nem and it reaches almost to the top to get light. I have new lights coming in, but they need a lot of light and a established tank. And my clowns host the mag cleaner and not the rose nem... SMH

I'm getting the aqua blue LED 60 (2 units) in a few weeks so lighting isn't an issue. And I'm not planning on the anemone for a few months. Just trying to get my wishlist more concrete.

And the only reason I really want an anemone is just to see if they will. I like the look of the carpet anemone but I'm not in a rush. Lol. Thanks for the I put guys.
Btw- how much fluxuation in water parameters in normal after adding two new fish? It has been a month since I added before and my water was perfect before the additions of my clowns. Now my ammonia went up and my nitrites went up. Just a little, but still wanna make sure. Should I do another water change? I changed out 10 gallons yesterday and Saturday was a 25 gallon water change.

New additions to the tank...

I returned the green flower pot today and got a full refund. The owner apologized for one of his people telling my husband that it was a hardy coral. So- all is well in the tank again. Lol. And I have banned my husband from going to the LFS without me.
