    let me know on the progress off it as ive been told u are ment to wait a year before any anemone goes into your tank

    Well from what i understand this is a soft coral not an anemone but its very similar otherwise i would of never got it I would have to wait at least 6 months before i could add any anemones.

    right i get you, you'd think its an anemone, did u not quarantine tank it 1st?
     
  9. fishman705 Member Member

    Well for some people that would probably be the ideal thing to do but I don't have a quarantine tank so I at least make sure to check my water parameters every other day instead of getting a 10 gallon to quarantine every single thing that I buy.

    Looks nice, I love mine!

    No worries I don't have a QT either. If I did I doubt I'd quarenten corals.

    My piece has been doing super well, super easy to keep fed and everything! I've heard they can sting so make sure you don't put them too close to any other corals.

    Also keep an eye out my clowns like to host in mine. I had to buy them an anenome
