Started nov 1st. Some guy on Craigslist was being evicted. Went to save the fish. Put them in a 30G I had while I saved up to get a nice 65G set up. Have a Fluval G6, wave maker, protein slimmer and a fluvalSEA LIGHT 48-65in light (full coverage) with live sand and red Caribsea rocksSecretiveFish said:Your tank looks fairly young. How long has it been set up? IME cyano is part of a tank maturing but can be managed in the mean time. Improve flow near sand bed and watch your nutrients. It can take several months for the bacteria to run its course though so try not to get to frustrated!
HarryPotter said:Anemones will not do well with that lighting unless they are about three inches below the fixture. Your fixture has 60 Watts, and according to its specifications you will have well under 50 par getting to the anemones. Not nearly enough.
I know it sucks and you’ll want to try it for a while first, but I’m speaking from years of experience as a hobbiest and retailer. They’ll get smaller and smaller, and then have a gaping mouth. You can look at the PAR specifications yourself of the fixture and compare them to the anemones known requirements. No good.
For some perspective, a $99 fixture a third of its size has 165watts.
If your fish store is selling you anemones during a cycle, I wouldn’t go there anymore. They are more sensitive than fish to instability, known to release from the rocks when unhappy and get shredded in powerheads or filtration. stella1979
My bad, I misunderstood.xhimbica88 said:Who said they are selling me anemone? And my 65G is cycling on its own / fishless. Different tank from my 30G obviously.
