    Does anyone still keep mini carpet anemones?

    I remember the huge impact they made when they first came out and how everyone wanted them, only to find out later that they were a pest, grew larger than expected, and that ate things, and stung corals.

    Well the original green one from years ago. Stayed around the same size. New peachy colour one last year. Haven't had issues with them. No fish eating, keeping to the same rocks.

    Want to attempt fragging one :)
