Shame that crab does need an anemone, they look spectacular on the green carpets.

I was going to get a small carpet anemone, and then swop it out everytime it gets too big, but then I read that it is not absolutely necessary to keep him with an anemone.

Nice crab, shame, he needs an anemone, what about a little sand anemone?

The light that is on is my only light. Some more lighting is in the pipeline.

lol, no I don't have one.

I assume they will accept pretty much any anemone, I bought one for my heteractis anemone and he stays with it permanently

Gees you guys sound like you went to refining school.

Happy now?

Can someone ID this anemone? I can't seem to find specific info. Looks like some sort of carpet.

Thanks Tom. Yeah, the photos doesn't do it justice. It's bright yellow. I can't seems to ID it using internet.

:lol::lol::lol:

Now that's what I like to see :D

Looks like it may possibly be a bubble tip anemone by looking at the bulbous tips, not too sure though.

Where's the crab? Stick him on top of it.

Very possibly be BT, was my first thought as well. But the tenticles are very short. Nice creature either way.

I will let the anemone settle in tonight and if the crab hasn't found him by tomorrow, I'll kindly point him in the right direction.
