Thanks... Being a new guy to this, I've been doing a lot of research... I liked them better too. Now I gotta get rid of the GHA... Getting more inverts for that issue.

No, don't worry. Anemones aren't very difficult to keep. Just keep your water quality high and appropriate lighting. Every once in a while, you could feed him some uncooked seafood. I got my sebae anemone a month after getting into the hobby and it's been doing perfectly, even hosting both my maroon clowns.

K. Was sweating bullets... Lol... Lighting seems great, just did pwc, and fed it some frozen brine shrimp. It took it, so hopefully it'll find a place to chill and prosper...

Actually anemones can be fairly difficult to keep. They require pretty pristine water conditions and don't live very long in aquariums for the most part. Most of the "experts" maintain that an aquarium should be at least a year old to minimize the dangers of fluctuating water parameters.

That being said... Keep a close eye on it. You are obviously researching now on the care requirements, which is good. You may have found a healthy specimen that you will have great success with. Good luck.

Buzz kill... Lol... (Jk) Ok. I will. The condy was really doing great, so lord willing, it'll make it. I'll keep you posted. Looks as if the two new clowns are really interested in it. Keep swimming really close to it... Hopefully they will host. We shall see. I do appreciate the advice.

Lol. I know, right? Someones always gotta rain on a parade. But, better to know that there is some cause for caution than to make mistakes. Anemones are pretty sensitive to change and they aren't very forgiving with mistakes. Make sure you keep an eye on your water quality and provide them with some serious light and you should be fine. We also target feed ours on occasion. A simple set of chopsticks is a good way to do that. It will take the food right off of them.

My light is really good. And I target fed it earlier. Had the frozen brine shrimp and placed it by it's mouth. It's tentacles grabbed it and it munched a lil. I left it alone for now, going back upstairs in a few to check on it. Still mad I lost my 6 line wrasse, but I did get a purple tip and two clowns outta the deal.
