Anemones

I have a 46 gallon saltautolinker.com autolinking image water tank and I just bought a dual lamp t5 ho and I want too add some anemones to it. Do I need a protien skimmer or a refugium for them?

Re: Anemones

From what I understand, you'd want a skimmer in the event there's uneaten food in the tank that the fish and/or anemone didn't want. The skimmer will help keep your water balanced by stripping water of waste and also increase your oxygen levels. I run a skimmer on my 29g saltautolinker.com autolinking image tank and even with just live rock, it pulled out a little bit of gunk. Here's an easy read about skimmers that I thought highly informative. Hope I helped!

What Is Protein Skimming, and How Does It Work

Re: Anemones

Anemones produce a lot slimes and skimmer is good for that.

Success is measured by years, not by months.

How old is the set up?
Anemones should only be added to "stable/established" systems.
6 months old min-1 year is a better marker.
