First time anenome owner. RBTA help.

Picked this up at the frag swap yesterday. They had it just sitting in a little tub on the desk so I was Worried if that plus the hour card ride would be okay but I did it anyways.

Today I noticed these white spots and I feel like it shouldn't be that stringy...

Great looking nem. Nothing wrong with it. Keep water pristine. That and strong lighting = victory.

Well that's good to hear especially only be in my tank for 24 hours. I hope my clowns host.

Do I need to feed it anything besides cyclops brine and mysis when I feed the fish ?

I've seen them with them or without them. It's typical.

I used to like feeding mine clams on a half shell or rosey minos left over from my brackish tank. Just remember to wear a glove when getting your hands close or use tweezers.

Ps I thowed and removed the shell before feeding mine clams.

Unnecessary, they rarely eat things and get most energy off of light. I've never fed mine and it's fine. If the food is too big it'll stress it out along with use more energy than it gets from it.

Hmm I never thought about that... the energy it takes to eat something vs what it gains from eating it. So is it harmful to feed them or does it not matter either way. It is cool to watch it take down a fish.

Only if it is too big to digest. And the energy gained is miniscule...though you are right that it is cool to watch them eat!
