    Hello there. Please can I have an ID on this anemone and some info?
    I noticed quite a few of these anemones on my LR, this one was the largest.

    Definitely looks like a type of jewel anemone, if you do a google image search for jewel anemone you will see the many different variations of this species. Innocent little creatures that will just keep to themselves and do their thing in your reef.

    The tentacles are clear and the tips are white.

    Thanks Viper. I did an image search. I guess it is a jewel anemone. :thumbup:
    Any idea on how to take care of these creatures, like feeding, lighting, waterflow etc.

    Off the top of my head I think they aren't too fond of direct light, and they seem to be filter feeders and will just feed off the water column, best to do some proper research on them though, wet web media might have something on them.

    Thats good. They do seem to be attached to the sides and under the LR away from the light. I will look into it, Thanks Viper :thumbup:
