Thanks. This is stuff i wish i knew about months ago and greatly apprectiated.
This is a great Article and Thread!!
Great advice! This is a great help for a soon to be first anemone addition.
Thanks!...the info on shrinkage especially was helpful and cleared up some questions i had.
anemone losing its "z"
my anemone has lost almost all its "z" due to a power head a few months ago. its a lot healthier now and I was wondering how long it is going to take for it to have its bright purple colour again? thx
Coloration is variable and depends on lighting, what lighting is the anemone under and what type of anemone?
Welcome to 3reef.
Might have better luck starting a new thread.
+1 to Corailline's questions though. Feeding it may help too, FWIW
Great article! I was actually about to post a question on here about Anemones.
This is my spotted RBTA and it's tiny. It's grown from about the size of a dime, to the size of a quarter. No problems thus far!
But I was curious if the size of the Anemone has anything directly to do with it's health? I see all these BTAs about a food wide and they all have health issues or end up bleaching.
Tiny 'nem, tiny tank! (excuse my upside down deepwater, it's my only sps and it never sees much love.)
Not sure what type of anemone it is but it has long tentacles and used to be purple and now it is white with purple tips and is about 10 inches in diameter. It is under two 250 watt metal halides.
And yes z= zooxenthellae
