Mandarins are just slow in generally, so the nem can catch them fairly easily...as long as the nem is fed, and the mandarin doesnt get to close it will be fine

Great, that's what I wanted to hear, it means that I can have a mandarin once my tank is more established.

well, not really.....an anemone will take in whatever touches it and worry about it later (J/K, anemones don't have brains), and mandarins know not to touch an anemone IMO/IME. a failing mandarin that is starving to death however, might bump into an anemone and become food.
it has nothing to do with the speed of the fish, or the fact that the anemone has a full "stomach".
love the serpent btw!

If I could butt in for just a second here.

Hey Mr. _X since you love to help people out, I have a good cause for you. There is a thread called "classroom setting up 10 gal. OT this afternoon". It is someone teaching a home school class. Some kids are young and some are high school age. I am trying to help them out as best I can but you could be a huge help to them. I think it is a cool way to teach kids. If you have time, check it out and give them a hand. I think the kids are posting most of the questions.
