    It's exactly THAT Spentacle: A SAND anemone..... Also research: LTA (Long tentacle anemone).
    Or alternatively, Condylactis passiflora...

    Poor thing is BLEACHED to hell.

    You WILL have to feed it every 2nd day, a small piece of raw fish and/or mussel meat... Or perhaps pink shrimp...

    Yup, bleached as heck, and spentacle, about your substrate, I had a tank with the same substrate and started having problems after a few months, you might wanna get some finer substrate for your tank

    Spentacle - not 100% - if it is indeed a sand anemone/LTA, they could quite possibly. If it is a condylactis passiflora, then you have a 50/50 percent chance that they might.

    i clean the substrate with every water change which is about every three to four weeks .I also have a reverse flow undergravel system setup. I know its old fashioned but has worked so far for me. I am not keeping any corals in this tank just locally caught fish. I will see how it goes but the tanks been running fine for about 5 months now so rather gonna leave it the way it works than upset it now. I was also a bit worried about using the shingle but did it anyway. thanks for the advice though lowflyer
