    Hi

    I spotted two small (I think) glass anemones on the skeleton of my fox coral.

    Literature and the web is very confusing and no one seam to agree on what to do.

    Do I:

    1. Leave them and home they will stay only two?

    2. If i have to remove them, what is the best way ?

    No, I do not have a quarantine tank.

    They will eventually reproduce and take over your tank and sting your corals.

    Remove and send to me for my hungry Copperband ;)

    If they are aiptasia then you need to remove them, they are a pest anemone and can rapidly multiply in your tank and sting other corals.

    Yip agreed, and if they only on the skeleton of your fox coral, whip it out now.

    They like Marine weeds :D
