anenome problem

Hi Im new to saltwater tanks I have a 34 gallon Red Sea Max plug and play. Its been running for 3 month. I also have a long tentacle anemone some days it looks great and some days the tentacles are shriveled up. I am just so worried about it wiping out my whole tank. I am at the point where I am so stressed about this thing that I am having a hard time enjoying my tank. I was told b the dealer I got it from if it starts spewing out its insides that I need to get it out. Any advice you can give me would help.

The Angel has not bothered with the Anemone at all. None of the fish have. Now today it looks good. The light I have in there is the ones that came with the tank. Not sure if any of you are familiar with the tank but if so is it possible to rig up a different lighting? I got this tank as it was suppose to be easy to deal with. So far its been nothing but a headache. Large amounts of bubbles shooting out from the circulation pumps. LOTS of debris floating around. I've been on the phone as well as emailing Red Sea for about two months now. They have been really good at sending new parts but I my as well built the thing myself. I think CaptainAhab has it right. Whatever the stock lights that are in the RedSeaMax 130/34gal

Eeeewwwww K...

Perusing another thread it looks like you have an Angel, a yellow tang and a Blue/Hippo in there? Anything else?

Your anenome may just be trying to find a quiet place to contemplate life in an over crowed aquarium

Thats it for fish besides the clean up crew. Its fully up and happy looking today!!! Do you really think its over crowded? Why wouldn't I be stopped by my fish supplier? I only have three fish. and they are all very small. The blue Tang is the size of the tip of my thumb. I am planning on up grading to a bigger tank sooner then later I am just starting and have never had a tank before beside a 9 gallon fresh water.

Ahhh...

Along the same line of thought as CaptainAhab, since the tank has only been up for 3 months with all those fish, have you checked your water parameters? Specifically... ammonia and nitrites?

Because they wouldn't make money off you anymore if they told you that you were maxed out? Just a guess...

Size of the fish really doesn't matter. You've got fish in there that really want to be in a much bigger tank. Different fish need different spaces to "stretch their fins", like they do in nature. Just because a fish is small doesn't mean that it still doesn't need that space.
