View Full Version : Epicystis crucifer with Grammas?

06/16/2016, 05:06 PM
Hi, I am in the planning stages of a 40 breeder build, and debating between a Caribbean/sea grass biotope with a gramma harem, or a clownfish/anemone tank.

My question at the moment concerns keeping E. crucifer anemones with grammas and other smaller Caribbean fish that tend to be in the rockwork a lot. Would the flower anemones endanger the fish and conversely are there any fish that would nip the anemones?

I have grammas and barnacle blennies in a tank with a condylactis anemone. No problems, except once, the anemone got too close to the barnacles, so I moved it. I was worried the blennies might try to nip at it, to keep it away, and get stung. Flower anemones pose little danger, with tiny tentacles and less wondering around.

Butterfly fish are anemone nippers.

Good, I was thinking grammas, C. argi and not much else for fish, since it is only a 40.
