    Hi there. Good to have u on the guest list. I would like to know. Could i keep something like a bubble tip in a tank that is 16x16x20 inches with a 150watt metal Halide on? Taking into account that this tank will share a sump with my current setup which is a little under 300 litres. Making the total water volume well over 300 litres. I will plumb the tank with a closed loop so that it is amenone safe. Or is a tank that size just to small for one? I don't want to put one in my current setup as my three powerheads are sure to make soup out of him if he decides to take a walk. Thanks

    Thank you Steve!

    Yes, you can. You will still need to protect the intakes on the closed loop, or have enough intakes that the suction is low enough that it won't take in the anemone if it should roam. Anemones can grow 18" or larger in captivity. However, bubble tips may split, or you can propagate it if it gets too large.
