LOL thanks man, I stopped as HD on my way home and picked up a few I was using a piece of branch rock tied to a fishing line and then using a rubberband to hold the Nori on... I have been looking for something like this for a few wks now... Thanks alot for the info...

looking good, i think the anemone needs to be much higher in the tank, they need a lot of light.

more fish? how many and what fish has it eaten?

if you don't get it more light it will likely slowly die.

Hey Carl, if an anemone isn't happy where it's at, it will move itself until it finds a good location. If it needs more light, it will re-position itself.

Nice anthias. Looks like someone took their own advise and took a short drive up to Jaws.com LOL................

After I left your house, I went by it too. I could have driven back home with at least 20 fish easily. Temptation and circumstances are two different mistresses...........
