    It was a temporary solution when everything was moved from the main tank, but it seems to be thriving currently :blush:

    Bought another Tube Anemone over the weekend, it's doing well, but seems to be more orange than pink in the light.

    Just do not place different species ones too close to each other. I found that the banded ones and the other straight forward do not like each other. The banded wins. Other one wither and dies.

    I got a purple banded. The tentacles is purple with white bands. Had a big yellow one, and since putting them together the yellow one shrank until it died. Maybe in a big tank, far away from each other, yes.

    Similar colored ones can be kept close to each other.

    They're fine together at the moment, both eating well. Orange one was a bit sensitive to the light, but adapting slowly.

    single color ones, where the long tentacle is only one color. They seems to be fine with each other. Even the center part can be different colors.
    But do not add those banded ones if you already got a single color. Although the banded are in a way more beautiful. That is my experience. But agreed, they were in the same DSB. So in my setup they were too close to each other as well.

    Stunning, now I want one.
    Do they have the same requirements as a normal anemone?
