    So these guys are quickly becoming the in thing to keep all over the world and the craze is now hitting our shores.

    Coming in beautiful colours and being easy to keep and propogate I am sure we will see a lot around in the next few months.

    So why not post pics of your Mini Carpet Anemones here so we can all see them. :)


    I will start it off.

    I bought three of these little guys this morning that came in on the Vietnam shipment last night. One Maroon and green, one Pink and green and one Dark green with a lighter shade of green running through it.

    Here are some pics after just being introduced into the tank as well as a pic that I took this evening of them. Sorry for the bad pics, will try and take better ones tomorrow.

    They do walk around...and lol they are normal anemones...just small ones :p As for lighting they say T5's should be ok if higher up in the tank, and MH's if they are going to be low down.

    I was wondering when they'd appear here. I've been trying to find them ever since they appeared on the CORAL front page. Apparently Elite brought some in down here in the Cape.

    Ya this is where I saw them first as well, and read up on them.

    They are pretty cool Tremayn, and they stay really small...average size being 5cm across, and the largest Maxi Mini's only reaching 13cm.
