Thanks. I am a bit addicted to haddonis. But, at least I can't get anymore -- without setting up a 4th tank, which won't happen --- I hope.

do they have a more common name--after I saw yours I decided to do a little calling around locally but all I get is "huh-what kind of anemone"

They are sometimes called "carpet" anemones, but that can be too broad of a term, could mean S. Haddoni, S. mertensii, S. gigantea, or even an Atlantic carpet (( not a natural hosting anemone )).

If you are thinking about a Haddoni, be aware that most people have issues with them eating their fish --- tangs, angels... I have been lucky and only lost 2 fish to them in the 10 years I have been keeping them -- one was a Yellow watchman goby and the other was a Mandarin -- not the best fish for a sand dwelling anemone.

ouch that sucks

thanks for the heads up---I have a 40 gal use for everything tank which I could use for it. Right now it has the two clowns and the pink anemone in it. Is there any danger to the clowns with a carpet anemone

What type of clowns? And are you going to keep that other anemone in there (( and what type is it ))? For just the clowns and a Haddoni, think that would perfect. Could try some other fish, but it would be a risk. Like I said, I have been lucky with them, but from all the reading I have done, that isn't the norm.

the picture of the clowns and the anemone is the second picture I posted above.
I'm mainly using that tank for coral frags. There is a hawk fish in there but it can go in the display tank.

I'll just have to setup another tank for anemones

Thank you Sugar Magnolia.

How did you get your Blue Carpet so blue ? My Blue carpet is dark when it is not opened up allot. When it fully opens it is much lighter. I have it under MH & have had it for manny years. His color is constant & I have had him in 3 different tanks over the years.

Ahh, okay. I have kept a Haddoni with a BTA before, there wasn't any real issues, but the Haddoni did look "happier" after I sold off all the BTAs. The hawk might be an issue, since they perch, wouldn't want it to try to perch on a rock that has one of the folds of the Haddoni it it. So it would be a risk, and up to you if you want to take it.

Don't think I have done anything special -- shortly after I got it is really darkened up. Has been under MHs the whole time, but they have been higher K bulbs. (( Phoenix, and then XM and Radium 20Ks )) This is its color when I first got it.

Ok, I dont use the 20k bulbs so that might be it. Mine looks like yours in this picture & I am running 14k.
Thanks

Sure thing.

What 14K bulbs? The Phoenix bulbs, IMO, really are 20Ks. For a while I thought it was because it was getting some sunlight from a skylight, but it kept that color as the season changed and after I moved it to another tank.

Plus, there are going to be different shades of blue. Yours could just be naturally a bit lighter blue. Just look at all the different shades of red for RBTAs.

I bet the 20ks would make hip pop. It is almost time to get new bulbs so I might give a 20k a try on him.

don't you also need the 10,000k's to provide full spectrum light for the zooanthella in the anemones?
