I personally wouldn't put an LTA in with the anemones you already have. I'm not saying it can't be done, but I wouldn't.

Eldouble, you might have a Macrodactyla doreensis, based on the very brief description you gave. You could look for pics online and recognize it most likely. This website or WetWebMedia would...

(bbridge)250 watts on a 12 gallon sounds like overkill. Wouldn't it be better on your wallet/light bill to have a lower wattage setup?

As host anemones go, I would say the LTA (Macrodactyla doreensis) is more difficult to keep than a BTA, but less difficult to keep than say H. magnifica or S. gigantea. How large is your tank? You...

A pic of its column would maybe give more clues whether it is a BTA or not. It really doesn't look like a H. crispa, though they are often bleached terribly when in lfs. The absence of bubbles is...

Maybe it's still acclimating. A brief drop to 67F shouldn't be a problem, that is well above the low temps. occasionally encountered in the wild. The strong lighting might be an issue, is it hiding...

My H. magnficas love salmon. If you can get it fresh, it is a very nutritious food for your anemone. It has tons of good oils in it. But, it is oily, so avoid the fatty part and stick with the...

I've never tried the sugar solution for nitrates, but I know what you're talking about. A good skimmer, regular water changes, good water flow, siphoning the top inch of gravel, and a deep sand bed...

From the pic you posted, my best guess would be a bleached BTA, too. With regular feeding and good lighting, you will probably see the anemone become darker and get its zooxanthellae back. I would...

I would suspect all the things in the tank might be the problem "shrooms, xenia, gsp, candy cane, polyps, small monti cap, and a torch."


Anyway, if you could move it to another tank it might...

Yeah, that should be fine. I've noticed that keeping things in the freezer for more than a couple of months it loses its freshness and the anemones aren't as eager to eat it. You might want to buy...

Yeah, two anemones in a 29 gallon, not a good a idea. The condy looks fine, but the H. crispa is partially bleached--as usual. Also, that is one large maroon to be in an anemone that size. They...

Haddoni looks good 57, of course, it will eventually outgrow the tank if you feed it regularly.

Anemones seem particularly fond of variety. I get shrimp uncooked with the head still on at an Asian seafood store. In the pics, the anemone (Jason's) looks good. As someone else mentioned, if you...

A specific gravity of 1.025 or 1.026 might be preferable. You could just top off evaporated water with full strength salt water to bring it up slowly.

Jason, maybe it has to do with lighting, or maybe it has to do with water quality. Params? Water change frequency? Brand of salt mix used?
