Bubble Tip Anemone!!!
Size: 4"
Aquired: TODAY!

I am really excited about all these. Tha anemone is what inspired me to finally get a camera. I actually saw this one and RTBA last week but they had just got them in at the LFS and I wanted to let them sit so I knew they were healthy. "Lucky" the RTBA was gone because it was beautiful and $200. This one was still there and only $40 and was fully inflated with an intact base, so now it is mine!

Yeah I know, call the cops!

It was normally $84.00, but I got him on sail for $45.

Seriously though, I didn't quite understand the requirements when I got him, the LFS said minimum 70 and I had a 65 so whats the difference right. When browsing online later and after enduring the inevitable online abuse, I realize the going wisdom is 100 gallons minimum. You know what though? As the picks clearly show (taken today) his is healthy and energetic, so until he causes problems or looks unhealthy I will leave him in his happy home!

BTW, I also have two acans and two zoas coming in the mail Saturday!

That's a beautiful tank. It'll be even better once those corals grow out and fill in even more color. Nicely done.

Thanks!

Yeah it will be a long hard wait but I think I have a good mix of colors/shapes for when everything is settled and grown. I am pretty much done with my aquisitions for the most part. I am sure that a random coral or two will snag my eye but we are all succeptable to that!

The two acans and two zoas I got Satureday are awesome, I will try and get some pics up soon.
