    Hi Guys,

    Quick question :

    I have quite a few small anemones ( approx 2-3cm in diameter) that came with the LR. As I went through the cycle , more anemones started opening up. I haven't been able to really ID all the anemones. I just refer to them as "Rock anemones" for want of a better word. :p

    Now, do I need to feed these anemones ?

    Bear in mind that my tank doesn't have any fish as yet. Only CUC.

    I wouldn't feed them. They will get their food from your lights and the water column

    Thanks Warr,

    Would there be enough suspended "food" particles in the water column, bearing in mind that there are no fish as yet that are being fed ?

    Being so small, there will be food.

    Ok. Here are some pics of a few of the nemmies that came with the LR.
    Bear in mind that they are very very small still at present. ;)

    I agree, especially the one in the middle pic, commonly known as Jewel anemones (like my avatar).
