An established tank of one year is not necessary, nor is a 100 gal. tank. Mine is only a 50 gal and around 4 months old. Both my BTA and LTA are perfectly comfortable, however do remember that LTA's are carnivores, and may potentially capture and eat other livestock (fish mostly.)

The long tentacles anemones are very attractive to see and very friendly in the aquarium.

    They are very attractive; but wandering is an issue. I had this wandering issue. After several weeks of wandering, I came up with a plan...and it worked! I took a 2 inch piece of PVC and cut it (3 1/2 inches long). I placed it in the aquarium laying down and gently created current with my hand to back the anemone foot into the pipe. I waited an hour and the anemone planted his foot into the pipe. After several hours I tunneled a hole in the substrate down to the glass. I stood the pipe up and planted it in the hole. I then built the substrate around the PVC so it is not visible. It has been a few weeks. The anemone is now eating, fully open and best of all planted!
