    Hi guys

    I am contemplating adding an anemone to my 4foot tank..i have always hesitated to keep one as I have this fear that it will move around and get caught in my pumps and shred itself or cover the overflow (and flood tank)

    Which anemone would you suggest? i have had a tube anemone before which i really liked. i also like the bulb tip anemone but would like to know which other variants i can consider that aren't too aggressive (as in eating fish up) or don't move around too much as i don't feel like having to rearrange all my corals because of a moving anemone. I would also prefer something with nice colour.

    In terms of lighting, i am running two 85watt intellisun Led units on my tank.

    I would suggest you go with a bubble tip anemones (BTA), Idol Marine used to get in inferno BTA's which are really stunning.
    The only thing that may be a problem is that they do not sit on top of rocks or the sandbed; they prefer a crevice to wedge themselves between.

    Good luck with your decision!
