They are awesome. He is my favorite. It loves shrimp. It's pretty cool when he eats.

But seriously, place him about mid tank if he is already attached to a rock. He like medium water flow and keep him distanced from other corals. Just as much as he can reach with his tentacles. He doesn't bother anything but his tentacles can sting whatever is in his reach. I thought he was pretty ugly when I bought him but he kinda grew on me. Lol.

No, a rock anemone shouldn't be able to eat any fish, they stay relatively small. Biggest one I've ever seen was like 4" across, and they're tentacles are very short.

Wow, that is huge for a Rock Nem. I still wouldn't worry too much about your fish. Carpets are usually the ones most known to eat tank mates.

A Condylactis? Yeah they've got long flowing tentacles. Rock nem's tentacles are usually very short and only on the perimeter, I think it would have a hard time overtaking a healthy fish. Just my opinion though.

Sure, it's a Sebae I've had for over six years.

This is a shot from the side of the tank, unfortunately it's is the only space I have for it, as it's gotten huge!

Thanks. If the Nem at the LFS looks like that, I'm doubting it's a Carribean Rock anemone. Rock/flower Nems are widely varied in their coloration.
I would google Rock/flower Nems and take a look. It's possible the LFS has it Mis-labeled.

I wouldn't, that war coral is pretty cool! Rock Nems are usually pretty inexpensive, I see small ones here for like $8-10, about 3-4" across.

Why do you think it's dying? It's supposed to be red/green/purple, just so you know, if you don't.
