    Carpet Anemone

    I was wondering if anyone had one for sale?

    We need to save our Polyps and Feather Duster from our crazy clowns

    Your tank is too small for a carpet anemone. Your clowns will probably not host in it either, carpets are very agressive, you will lose all your fish to it, your tank is way too small. HTH

    I have the Gigantea carpet anemone in stock which is know to NOT be a fish eater (unlike the hadoni).

    How small is your tank and what lighting do you have?

    it gives me a warm feeling deep inside when i hear retailers asking the right questions rather than going for the quick sale :045:


    a quick bit of advice, the Gigantea carpet is considered one of if not the most difficult species of anemone to keep. they are a shallow water specimen and require vast amounts of light and strong chaotic flow. i'm not trying to talk you guys out of it, just something to consider.

    what type of clowns do you have, there may be an easier to keep host anemone?
