    I have been growing this species for roughly 7 years, it started about the size of a quarter and has grown over 20 inches tall and 25 inches wide. Often overlooked cuz of its color but gives a reef tank a beautiful natural look.

Ok the favia wow,so many twists turns and they colors are unique,this coral under a 20k metal halide looks awesome,my favorite thing to watch is how the coral acts when you feed the tank. This coral actually smells the juices of the mysis shrimp or clams and it sends out really long sweeper tentacles to capture food,inside each maze circle is a mouth and it has no problem opening its mouth to intake what it catches in its tentacles. Don't place corals within 6 inches of it either due to the fact that them sweeper tentacles pack a potent sting. This coral grows very well on the sand.

i wanted to comment on the torch coral. It is my favorite in the lsp class. I am currently growing a yellow tipped torch under 130 watts of power compact lighting. This coral is an amazing beautiful creature. My torch loves to be fed frozen mysis shrimp. It currently has 2 heads they are developing into 4 heads.previously i had a small torch under 250 watts of hqi metal halide. That coral became a basketball sized showpiece. I must add they can grow under moderate light,but metal halide will really make them thrive as far as color and super calcification.

    The clam sorta burrows its 'foot' (body) out of the shell and into the sandy bottom and pushes itself in a forward motion. It uses the current in waters to carry it along.

The glass anemone is so annoying!! I have been removing them myself, but like they say remove one and two grow back!! I moved some rocks from my 50 gal tank to my 30 gal tank 3 days ago. The rocks that I moved to the 30 gal tank DID NOT have any glass anemone on them. I just checked my water level (my tanks are connected, by water circulating to filter water better) guess what I found,,,, about 10 glass anemones have grown on 1 rock. I have watched several videos on youtube on how to get rid of them. Today my mission is to go to the pharmacy hoping they will sell me a syringe so I can use the same procedure that I seen on youtube. Yes they are pretty to have in your saltwater tanks but they can harm your fish and other anemones. MY ADVICE TO YOU,,,,GET RID OF THEM QUICKLY!! Thank YOU!

I have a question. I have an established acquarium (10 years) I had 5 fish a tomato clown, a royal gamma, a firey hawk and 2 tangs. All but the tangs I have had for 4 or 5 years. I purchased a Pink Tipped Anemone about 2 weeks ago. I put it in my 55 gallon tank with the rest of my fish. Now all of my fish are dead. The only survivors are my crabs and one chocolate chip star fish. Was the presence of the anemone in the tank the reason my fish died? I had my water tested before I purchased the anemone and it was good. I am very upset over the loss of my livestock. Also, what can I get that can survive with the anemone? Thank you

    The water from the lfs could've had something inside of it, or the anemone was very stressed and your chem. levels went sky high. could've been a number of things really.
  • David S - 2010-10-14
    Unless your fish were eaten by your anemone it didn't kill them so some thing else is responsible, I hope you know never to add water from your transport bag to your tank from your local pet shops as they may contain copper or other harmful elements that can have disastrous effects to a reef system. Have you had your water tested since the incident?
  • Tanner - 2011-03-02
    When pink tip anemone's die, they let off a ton of ammonia, essentially like an ammonia bomb. If you noticed your anemone stressed and starting to die, if would be smart to remove it before you have a major problem. High levels of ammonia all the sudden that killed your fish, to me, would point to the anemone.
  • darien young - 2011-09-01
    what does the ammonia look like cause i just bought a pink tipped anemone the other day and the guy said it was go to the bathroom but it still looks funny and is leaving out it looks like smoke from the tenticles

I've had mine for about 3 months, although it was owned by my co-worker for a number of years. I love it, it is my prize coral, with a maroon body and neon green tips. If you're thinking of buying this coral it's a good addition, but placement in the tank can be tough. Just try to face it up so ALL the polyps get light, not just the biggest ones. And try to place it somewhere without TOO much flow, but it does need some flow. I recommend feeding it squid once a week, a little bit to each poyup head, and maybe zooplankton once a week, but not on the same day.
