    Id coral please

    Difficult to tell at this stage. Accuraterly identifying corals is always a crap shoot once you get past the standard spiecies. Your frag appears to have some possible thick branches in the center of where it is encrusting but the spots where it is beginning to branch out looks like a...

    Something's wrong with my bta.

    Has it been eating up until this point? Good coloration? Been increasing in size?

    New BTA. Is he healthy?

    Per your trying to get the clowns to host, I have had some success in the past by temporarly turning off flow in the area the anemone is located and target feeding my clowns directly above the anemone so that the food is falling toward the anemone. I know it sounds silly but while trying to get...

    New BTA. Is he healthy?

    The fact that he still is attached and has color is a good sign. You definitly want him to eat. I would still try something a little bigger. I have always had luck with silversides. I used to hold the silverside in a pair of long tweezers near the mouth so it couldn't float away. You never...

    New BTA. Is he healthy?

    Try feeding something a little bigger like a silverside. Put flake on the opposite side of the tank so the fish are pre-occupied then lay the silverside in the tenticles near the mouth. I use a long handled scraper to chase fish away until the anemone can start to pull in food. You may have...

    New BTA. Is he healthy?

    A couple of quick questions. What color was the foot on the anemone? Also is it eating (silversides, mysis, flake, etc..) and staying attached to the rock? Was it sticky? If so, those are good signs. I usually soak my silversides in zoe when I get a new anemone then place small pieces near...

    So why are fish from the Red Sea Prettier/More vibrant than from elsewhere?

    That would be Moses that parted the Red Sea. Maybe they are still just sunburned from that event?
