    Welcome

    Just watch out that that nennie on the right doesn't move towards that wave maker

    Is that another anemone right in the middle of the top rock?

    Yes those are bothe anemones, the green one quite likes the rock hasn't moved at all, the other one in the middle of the big rock already divide into two the day after I put it in. This one made that hole in the rock home immediately but unfortunately the other ended up in the tunze and I only saw it the next morning, but since neither has moved.

    I think the one split from stress, it doesn't look too happy up there. The green one looks lovely though.

    Have you been target feeding the sun coral?

    Hi Dude and welcome, a six week old tank is to immature to house nennies and that sun coral needs target feeding to thrive which might put stress on a yooung system like yours maybe im wrong just my 2c.Hope im not sounding nit to harsh but i have also learnt the hard way.

    All of the best.

    You started feeding the sun coral yet? They need feedings 2-3 times a week. Every 'mouth' needs to be fed.
