Always a possibility. But, yours has the option to stay on the glass ecause you have no sandbed. So yours could just stay down there instead of going onto the rocks!

I think before doing anything else to your tank stock wise you should decide whether you'll get a nem or not cause like you said they may kill everything inbetween point A and point B lol but honestly I wouldn't get one. You can find Aussie frogspawns hammers and torches with amazing color and they can't walk haha

This is exactly how I feel about it. Anemones sometimes stay put for ages and once the other corals really grow in they can get unsettled and go on a raid. The danger sometimes comes only after the tank matures and gets crowded. I admire people with the balls to keep them in a reef. I just never have the budget to chance it. When a reef gets overcrowded it's time to make extra money selling frags. When the nem runs short on room it sometimes goes on a rampage.

They're gorgeous though. I don't put lion fish in my tank... just in case. I shy from nems for the same reason. Beautiful but deadly is cool, but it's unnerving.

What's up Adam, I'm bout to sell a couple frags to a guy in your area and he offered to trade a wall hammer which I don't really want another hammer coral since I got my beautiful purple/purple hammer but thought I'd let you know about it since you might be able to get a deal. I think he will come off it for $25.

Hmm, it depends on how far away he lives and if I have cash at the time. Hopefully I get some bday money soon and I can spend it on the hammer, it's beautiful lol.

Thanks for telling me!!!

No problem I got his number so just let me know. He's coming down tomorrow to grab some polyps and xenia off me which I might just make a trade for all the return plumbing I'm gonna need for my 6' plywood tank

Thought I would inform you today is the first day of 100% recovery on the birdsnest I got off you. Every branch has full polyp extension with new growth and beginning to fully color up with and almost neon green polyp and reddish brown body. Couldn't really capture the colors but you can see the nice polyp extension ..thanks Adam its becoming one of my favorite sps pieces in my tank lol
