    Does not look too bad!! Maybe only one thing, your substrate is too coarse. It will become a detritus trap and cause you some headaches in the future. Is it possible for you to remove it and put in some reggies playsand or aragonite?

    Substrate changed

    Hi guys,

    Made some changes to the tank now. Substrate has been changed and have added another power head. Was think of getting a cleaner shrimp but are they compatable with anemones?

    They are nemmie safe, and immune to nemmie stings too.

    Hey Noob, really like your scaping - nice LR you have there. What lighting do you intend adding for the nemmie?

    Is the tank a 4ft? I made the mistake of adding a tang to my 4ft - thus my upgrade, beware, that saily gets BIG, FAST.

    Advice to any new reefer is, dont get a tang in anything under 6ft, expecially heavily scaped, as there is not enough swimming space

    Hi,

    it is a 4ft, will see how it goes with the tang it is a beaut. I currently have two t5's but the manufacturer of my tank is bringing out a four light unit and will add it as soon as it becomes available.

    ok, mine got way too big within 6 months, and they are a bas%*rd to catch!

    depending on your Nemmie, 4 T5's may not be enough light, what nemmie are you looking at?

    Hi Marinenoob - your tank is looking great so far. I agree with Marc - I also really like the scaping mate! Good job so far. Just monitor the sailfin - they are not SO bad when it comes to white spot (marine ich) - BUT, as soon as it starts to stress, it might just start getting whitespot (stress due to it growing to big without any swimming space).....

    Also - please don't add another tang - as this will DEFINITELY cause them to fight over the little bit of space that is there - and cause them both to get whitespot and perhaps die....

    Other than that - good job - and good luck!

    AH, so you have a nemmie in already? Perhaps not the best idea, but lets try ID it before we cast them stones - can you get a better pic?

    Hi MArineNoob - where did you get the nemmie from? It is possible that this is a "sand anemone"....

    Does the "foot" have light spots on it?

    And I cannot see the oral disc - does the oral disc have radiating stripes on it?

    No - no problems. You should feed it at least once a week, and you can feed some of the following:
    - freshly chopped mussel meat (about 1.2 centimeter) pieces
    - small pink shrimps
    - chopped fresh hake
    - small pieces of lance fish
