    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Yes they are very good images!

    Were they that pale cream color when you collected them?

    What temp is your tank running at?

    Thanks, and yes this is their original coloration. I saw some other big warties that were white instead of greenish brown but i was unable to get them. However, my small warty is a creamy white so maybe i'll get lucky and it will stay white as it grows.

    +1 to warty nems, feed them silversides or chopped small bits of fish, just drop it on to them. They are photosynthetic I heard maybe...but I have kept them alive for years under weak lighting and the occasional (once a week?) feeding. Very hardy anemone.

    this anemone wont host the clown, would eat him instead, same for a condy (yep the Caribbean), or at least that is my impression. Frogspawns are pretty easy hosts for clowns I think depending on your setup

    I had to ask, you said that you still have the ray on hand and in the video it is the same tank, where are you keeping the ray until you get rid of it?
