    cold water anemones are very nice and colourful. Where and how do you get specimens for cold water system if you live in Pretoria?

    I get them from the Blouberg/Melkbos area. I use a 12v air pump to keep the water full of oxygen. These anemones are extremely hardy! I've had them for over a year now and they thrive.

    Love "local" systems, definitely my next project.

    What type of algae are you using in the refugium?

    Thanks for all the input guys. I have 9 little fish and will try and take a pic later. Think they are baby harders. I would love to add more fish but coldwater livestock is extremely rare. Hopefully I can get a catalina goby this year
