I'm feeding them some Kent ZooPlex and DT's Live Phytoplankton and DT's Oyster Eggs about twice a week.

I have considered doing the magnet mod but because of college I can't really afford it right now.

Oh and sad news, because of the 4 stripe damsels, my red fairy wrasse has died.

its ok, i think if I decide to get another fish - I'm going to get rid of the at least 1 if not both 4 stripes so they don't stress it to much.

Wednesday update - Well I work at an lfs and we got our shipment in yesterday. We got in a small carpet anemone and I decided to buy it. Or at least it was small when we got it in. It has hence opened up to over 5 inches. First the price i payed - 12.99. We bought it for 8.00 - the price if sold to a common hobbyist - 24.99.

I know you're looking for pics but i don't have any yet but they will come in time.

NICE... just be careful because some anemones can injure other fish and corals, i love your feather dusters... sorry to hear about your loss but, if i was you i would consider getting clowns to host that carpet...OH and just a tip, i wouldnt put too many anemones in that little tank because they will have a "turf war" and that will only cost you more money...

thanks for the comments

yeah i don't plan on any other anemones. just let the current ones grow.

I've also got good news and semi-bad news.

First the bad news

the carpet decided to walk right up to one of my powerheads and got partially sucked to it.

The Good News
I unplugged the powerhead and he got himself out of it. Luckily none of his foot got caught in it and he is now perfectly fine, he walked back to the original spot. My current clown has no interest in the anemone but thats fine with me.

I know I know pics but i haven't had time yet, i promise they will come.

to get the clowns and anemone together, put the anemone and clowns in a bowl, with some tank water for about an hour and they will host.. it worked for me twice and many others i recommended...tell me how it goes... if you dont want to do that to your fish, then take some pics from the internet of clowns and anemone and tape them up on glass or your tank and that too will help, tell me what you decide and how it goes...

i don't want to take them out, the clown used to host several bta's in the previous tank he was in so hopefully he should find it - the anemone is in a spot that the clown doesn't go to as often.

the lighting is 130 W PC Lighting. In the next few months I am planning on switching to T5 - a little bit better for the photosynthetic anemones.
