    I need to replace my tank due to the scratches and some design probs.

    My problem is that i have a huge carpet anemone that is really comfy where it is and i would hate for it not to like its new home.

    I have been offered my friends tank and will have to adopt all its inmates too incl all his rock and corals.

    If i make the move must I try and build the reef as similar to what i have now or just set it up and hope for the best?

    Any other advice would be handy.

    As far as I know you can try and do the scaping close to what you currently have..although I read somewhere that even if you move something as simple as a rock, the Tank will be considered a "new Tank"...not sure if that applies to Anemones..:blush:
    Regardless of what you do...I think it will most likely move if he wan't to...as I think it's impossible to do a 100% replica...hopefully you'r "baby" will do just fine....:thumbup:
