New Anemone!

Hey guys!

Got a carpet, Yes i know they're lethal to my fish and other corals, But having anemones, I wanted something a little more challenging.

His about 15cm wide, Give or take 5cm or more. lol.

Tell me what you think!

Lethal to fish? The ones that need to know how to stay away.

Otherwise, good luck and ya think it's found a perching spot yet or is it wandering much. How long has it been in the tank?

Could you imagine, waking up to a slime trail from your pillow, across the floor, up the stand and glass? And the anenome in the tank chewing on a piece of your hair?

Cue the creepy music here!


Ok, ok. No more scary "B" movies for me.

Well im from Australia, And it cost me $100 here.

It CAN eat your fish, But only if you fish are stupid enough to go close enough to it.

Its possible for clowns to host it. Nope, It will not eat the clowns once the three form a relationship.

They clowns in my tank already have a host BTA. Hopefully they move onto the carpet, Because it looks awesome clowns swimming and hugging the carpet.

That's an awesome looking nem. I've seen those nasty little buggers eat a blue/green chromis that was swimming by. Once they even grab hold of it, it's like glue and the fish can't get out. So the fish struggles, and only gets itself more entangled in the tentacles. Pretty cool though.

Yeah, They're one of the most lethal anemones too. But as the LFS told me and as i've seen on the internet, It will only get them stupid fish, Most fish should realise its dangerous.

Thanks for the comments guys!

do they know that due to their instincts or thewy have to see some stupid fish get eaten because i have 2 regular clowns and one firefish (the other one disapeared out of the blue and i havent find it out of the tank or in) and one yellow tang that was really expensive due that it was a small one and a royal gramma and some other gay looking fish and i dont want it to eat them iam willing to sacrify some feeder fish like guppies or goldfish i hope i made sence

Dont feed it goldfish or guppies. they're not good for it. Feed it white bait (fresh) and silverside.

Instincts im pretty sure, Today my firefish touched the anemone(Only just), Well its tail. And it shot off as quick as it possilbly can swin.
As i said, The fish would have to be pretty stupid to get eaten by it.
its a bit of a hit and miss thing.

Anyway, Good luck.
