    Cool curly

    I'm pretty sure that name is actually the long tentacle anenome and a bunch of the tentacles are really curly like ringlets. I have one for over 2 years now. Judging by your tank size/age and lighting. I would suggest you don't take it. They grow very fast[will outsize your tank fast], they need great! water conditions[very hard to keep a 20g perfectly stable] and they love light[95w ain't gonna cut it]. You also won't be able to keep anything else in there[no room] I would pass.

    i agree...id pass on it... you really dont have the lighting to cut it. plus you should really have a mature tank to host anenomes.

    ya need to be carefull...some people will tell you anything to sell you a fish/coral/anenome. you just need a mature tank and some decent light. and ask lots of questions.

    I had one. They don't need super high lighting if you feed them regularly but they grow very large very fast. Mine was dinner plate sized when I gave it away. They are one of the easier anemones to keep but they take up a huge amount of tank space and sting anything nearby. I'd pass.

    I did too. Once. I bought one tiny curly cue and one tiny bubble tip. I gave away the curly cue a few months ago and now I'm trying to get rid of FOUR bubble tips. One grew, split into two and those split into four. They are almost impossible to get out of the tank and they sting - sting - sting. If I had my time back knowing what I know now I wouldn't have any anemone unless I had a tank set up for it. My reef just isn't the right place for one.
