    Notes:
    Temperate anemones that I have acclimatised to warmer water. Any system that can run at 22 degrees or lower will be fine. 2 of them are over 10cm. Sorry for the crappy phone pics. 7 anemones in total ​

    Sorry I won't be able to take these if they can't survive in my tank because it runs at 25degrees :(
    Is it possible that they will be able to acclimatize to 25 ?

    Myn has been specific in saying that he had to condition them to run his tank at warmer temps than the nennies are used to (often around 16-18 degree) and that the new tank should run at 22 or below.

    i think 24 is above 22 isnt it?

    Neccessary comment?

    C'mon guys, we're here to help each other.

    Clownfish. The nennies are prolly best suited in a cooler tank, similar habitat as maybe the cooler water of cape town. I've seen very similar coloured nennies in rock pools along the coast of durbs, the tempreture of the rock pools however fluctuates dependant on the tides. Rock pools heat up to extreme tempretures during low tides. I've seen them grow and thrive in such conditions.

    Whether these invertabrites are suited for these large fluctuations in tempreture or not they seem to thrive. IMO if the water conditions are good and the light and feeding of these nennies are 100% or close to it they will thrive.

    Well said Wes. They are extremely hardy. Some of them are completely exposed during lo-tide for more than 4 hours a day. Rock pools in the area reach more than 32 degrees in summer but this is only until the tide comes in again.

    Neemow has them now so can someone please inform me how to close this thread?
