I say if you put in a fair amount of LR that hasn't had much die-off, the few inhabitants you might have in a 10 gal probably won't even cause a cycle in your tank. I never had a cycle in my 90 gal that I put 60 lbs of LR in. I had very little die-off though because I picked up the LR from LR.com.

when anemones die, your house smells like rotting flesh. that's why I won't ever buy one again (not saying it wrong or whatever, just personal preference)

Did the foot come off of the rock? Ussually they loose footing when they die.

Keep in mind that anemones are not recommended for tanks that are not mature, which is generally considered about a year old.

I agree with maturity but was told a safe time wait was 6 months... Guess I was wrong.

I never did get the dead stink that everyone warns about!

FWIW, I'm not trying to imply tank maturity is the cause of this issue for sure. It's just something to keep in mind now and when setting up the larger tank.

A general idea is 4-6wpg to house typical BTAs. So I'd say at least 440w VHO or a pair of 250w MH pendants, or a 4x96w PC setup -- or any combination to total the needed wattage or appropriate lightwaves and intensity.
