Even though they're gross to feed (you have a fishy smell for the rest of the day, and there's a high probability you didn't feed them all because there is so many), they're actually really cool to look at. I am part of a class and I am studying them. They really produce quickly! And hardy? I checked the solobility in the tank and it was at 40! my teacher and I brought it down from 40, but wow, these things can live just on food or just on light. Both a-sexual and sexual too.

I find lots of info mentioning the brown manjoram anemone, but no real solution. Yes being proactive with quarantine is good, but doesn't solve the problem if they sneak in anyway and start to reproduce..

still looking for a solution to rid them...

I was able to find one of these at a lfs and was so happy I did they are so beautiful. Best anemone for a micro tank since they stay small and don't need a heater. It is very fast eater I have never seen an anemone's head move so fast from one side to the other to eat. The tentacles are very sticky and I don't think a clown could ever use one. I have a lot of small shrimp in my tank and the tentacles are so sticky that if their antenna even touch them he will quickly turn his head and the shrimp is doomed. Also they are so fast when you add some pods in the tank his little ten tentacle tips just pick them of one by one the coolest thing ever to watch. The colors are so intense it is beautiful. If you get a chance to get one do so and set up a species only 5 gallon tank with maybe a kenya tree or some paly's do not pass up the chance to own one of these guys. You can add one in a nano or large tank to just make sure the placement is right because if he goes on the move he will not just sting but eat any corals that stick to his superglue tentacles. A must have for the serious anemone enthusiast but a very rare one to find in certain parts of the world if you live in england you can probably just find one at the lagoons.

We have a pink-tipped anemone at our business. I am not the one who takes care of the two tanks we have, however, I am trying to help find out what would cause it to move up the side of the tank, almost to the top. It almost looks as if it is upside down. We are not sure that there is even a problem. But if it is, then we would like to resolve it as quickly as possible. Thank you for any help that you could give us.

    They move all over the place. Not an issue.
  • David Brough - 2012-09-27
    Actually, most corals that can move will do so if they are uncomfortable with their environment. It can be a number of things like water flow, but in your case it would probably be not enough light.

Just bought a Ritteri Anemone and last night my husband found it on the tank filter. Don't know how long he was being sucked up......not sure if it is okay. How do I know if it is going to live? What can I do to help it? Any advice and or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Doddie

    If it is not torn up too bad, it should be okay. Give it a quiet place in the aquarium and see if it attaches itself. Some anemones will recover from some pretty bad injuries, others will not.

    Thank you for your response. The ritteri anemone did survive. Within eight hours it looked 85% better. We got a guard for our filter so it won't happen again. We were lucky, now it is happy as can be in our tank.

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
