Hi all you saltwater fanatics! I am so happy I have found this forum. This hobby is amazing, and I am just dumbfounded with my tank. Here is a brief description just to introduce myself.
I am 24 years old, male,and a 2 year newly wed. I needed a hobby to keep myself out of trouble, so I decided to visit the pet store. I actually saw saltwater tanks before but i always imagined them to be out of my leage. Well, about 2 years ago I decided to dabble in this hobby. The pet stores seemed eager to sell me anything it seemed, ( now i see it it was probably because I looked young ,stupid,and gullable). So they would sell me a lionfish and shrimp, then the shrimp would be eaten by the lionfish and the store owner would just say "wow, that never happened before lol". So I spent about 2000 dollars on fish and they all died.
I just recently decided to visit a different pet store (about a month ago), and the owner informed me I needed live rock. I had no live rock in my 55 gallon tank, and he was very amused that i was never told about this. So i now have 60 pounds of live rock, and I was never told "why" it is called live rock. So last night, I was browsing this forum for the first time and I noticed a post about bristle worms and bugs that crawl around at night. I decided to take a look in my tank with a flashlight ( about 3 AM) and sure enough i had about 1000 bugs crawling around. I was amazed. So i looked some more and I saw pinkish worms crawling around in the crushed coral. Again , i was dumbfounded. I have never seen these creatures before , and now I looked and there were hundreds. I was so excited I woke my wife up screaming ( LOOK AT THESE WEIRD BUGS AND WORMS!) She almost punched me lol.
Anyways , today I went to the store again and purchased a pair of Black Percula Clownfish today, two cleaner shrimp, and 15 more snails. I decided to wait on a Anemone because the owner was waiting on a new shipment.
HERE IS MY QUESTION: Does anyone here have these Black Percula Clowns and recomend a certain Anemone host for them? I want to give them a perfect home, so any suggestions would be GREAT help.
This seems like a GREAT community, and I hope I didnt write too much or bore too many of you with my "book". I am just a very excited person, and I think i have found a GREAT forum to share it with.
