    Hi all. Read a thread earlier and saw a pic of the Majano anemone. Was not sure if i have the little buggers or not. Please could you id these for me. Mine are about golf ball size and bright green at the tips. They have been in my tank for about 3 months and have not reproduced or split so not sure if they are majano's. The have moved once when i changeed my flow. Thanks to MASSA and all the guru's for great info and help on this awsome site!

    I've had majano's and watched them very closely and over 1 year they never spread ?? Maybe my guys are just lazy to reproduce ???

    I saw a tank being overrun by rapidly multiplying majanos and the guy sold his tank as a result. So be very careful with these

    Spike it with white vinegar. I had them in my previous tank. Vinegar works.

    That was me who posted earlier. Mine look exactly the same, they haven't spread as quick as my Aptesia did, had to get a copperband to sort them out, fortunately she also eats flakes and super brine shrimp.

    Won't that make them reproduce? I would use Aptasia X by Red Sea as this seals their mouth at the same time.

    It completely dies off when spiked with vinegar. Haven't had reproducing in my previous setup.
    Should be spiked into the mouth

    The overrun your tank. I had one that popped out of a zoa colony. And after about a month had 5 in various locations in my tank.
