    I am still learning alot my self. But if I was you I would ask a friend to krep the anenome for a couple of months to a year till your tank matures enough to take care of that nennie properly. Or you can return it to the lfs but since its a freebee ask a mate to help you. sorry to only give you what you didnt want to hear

    Agreed. I would suggest getting it out your tank soon as it already doesnt look happy.

    Hi Busanmarc

    Congrats on scoring a very nice nennie !

    Would I be correct in remarking that you are cycling with the lights on ?
    If I may, I would suggest to rather cycle with the lights off.
    I have just cycled my new tank with the lights on, and the algal bloom was quite hairy. As soon as I continued cycling with the lights off, the algae virtually ceased to be.

    Agree with Addiv but you may cycle with switching on lights periodically for small periods of time...and darn you lucky to score a bubble tip anemone..well done..:thumbup:

    I cycle with a 10hour lighting period. Yes got some alea growth, but also got loads of living things on the LR.

    Congrats on the bubble tip

    The anemone is showing signs of starvation. Need to get it to an established tank soon!
