Very nice! They are Gigantea or giant carpet anemone. Theyre tough from what I've heard I hope he pulls through for you.

Yes. Stichodactyla gigantea. Not nearly as hardy as the hadonni carpets, but IMO a much more beautiful species. Both are looking a bit better, but it's a bit deceiving since they go through their deflate/inflate cycles. We'll see how they do later tonight right before lights go out.

Unfortunately the blue gig didn't make it. The purple one is doing quite well though.

Thanks for asking Hank. I forgot to update. Always do that. Anyways, the purple gig did not make it either.



After discussing with other reefers (as to why things went south after they were looking good throughout antibiotics treatment), we hypothesized it was due to allelopathy from another anemone. I have 4 BTAs in there as well, but they didn't strike me as the culprit. I did however have a rather large 11" sebae anenome. I wasn't a fan of the colors so I decided to turn it into the LFS for store credit.

I waited for a few weeks and purchased two new gigs. A small green and a small purple. They took to the new tank rather well and kept their mouths closed tight . Here they are now, each hosting a pair of clowns. It's been a few weeks now, so here's hoping they survive.

Very pretty. I like it. Really neat anemone and pretty uncommon.

Thanks Hank. I'd love to add a blue down the line, but we'll see. Would be nice to get 3 pairs of clowns each in its own anenomes, but I'd have to monitor that carefully.
