Nobody around here carries Oceanic. I'll look online and give
that a shot. It is nerve racking to have a perfectly healthy
tank with everyone happy and he just sits there looking
like he is sunburned or something. My chili coral opens
every nite to twice the size so he is ok in there.

Ok i dont know if i am ready for hard coral yet. my tank is a yr old this month. I have nitrates down to almost none after they went off The charts. I have decreased feedings and that has helped i think.just purchased a group of ten ric of different colors and a red sea fan and a long tentacle anemone
Anybody know if they are easy care for? This hobby is so addicting isn't it?

no. long tentacle anemones are not easy to care for. you will need powerful lighting and good water conditions.

Red Gulf Sea Fan. Parameters are 1.024, calcium 360, 0 nitrates and ammonia,
barely a trace of phosphates, temp 77.8, Ph 8.45. I see white polyps I think,
here it is and my new long tent anemone, how is he looking? He is new also.
Not a good pic, sorry.
