  1. here is a useful link http://fins.actwin.com/species/anemone.html it tells you about everything from the easy types to the most difficult how to feed etc anemones don't need clown fish to survive and thrive the same goes for clown fish majority of the time now alot of clown fish are captive bred and never seen an anemone in their life and wouldn't know what an anemone is there are lots of hobbyist that keep anemone only tanks but be forewarned do not mix different species of anemones if you decide to just keep anemones only as different species of anemones will sting each other it becomes a battle of dominance with 2 different anemones in a aquarium and believe me you don't want that cause if you have a well established system all it takes is one dead anemone to crash your whole system then you will have to start all over again. here is another link all the anemone keepers use this site she has alot of great info http://www.karensroseanemones.com/
  2. I agree with everything koko has said also depending on what size reef tank you plan on getting it may not hold the anemone very long as anemones can get very large esp the haddoni carpet they also require metal hailde lighting, and they can eat your fish. I say that if and when and your tank is stable after a year the best anemone to start out with would be rbta(rose bubble tip anemone)they only require t5ho this is a rbta http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2037/167549...6874d85.jpg?v=0 they can split too into clones and you tank might end up like this http://www.reefland.com/gallery/files/2/5/5/6/IMG_4988.JPG as for corals you can add them like 3-4 months but again it depends on what type of coral you want to do you have sps,lps,soft coral and zoanthids sps requires high lighting metal halide even though I have seen fellow reef hobbyist keep sps under under t5ho with out a problem but i think metal halide is actually better IMHO
  3. I painted my aquarium backs black I think it makes the color stand out on the fish I have never painted the bottom of my tanks though

  14. well after being out of the hobby for a long while I have gotten back into it this is first purchase I did a top view shot I was cleaning the tank and put him in the extra large bin and thought this was an opportunity to take a top view shot of him
  15. lol I agree it is hard to just stop at one and I know this as I am completely addicted to bettas I had spent 300 USD on bettas from thailand for only 7 betta and shipping once you start it is hard to stop I am saying this and 30+ betta now not including fry spawn 2 spawns I have 300-400 betta fry from one spawn and another few hundred from another spawn I am going to have to ask koko to change my nn to swimminginbettas
  16. you are quite welcome nicki you can go to aquabid also there are a few breeders I could point you in the direction to that are well known my betta in my avatar is from a betta breeder I know
  17. you can feed them pellets as well as other food as bettas are carnivores I feed them Ocean Nutrition atisons pro betta food they are pellets I also feed freeze dried blood worms and frozen blood worms and frozen brine shrimp these brands are by hikari I also feed them live foods such as grindal worms black worms etc as it nutritious for them I also use Indian Almond Leaf for them they seem to love it Nickie I will let you know that you can keep female bettas together they call it a sorority it is recommended that you keep atleast 8-10 in a sorority they have a pecking thing they go through to see who is going to be the Alpha betta of the sorority but it is nothing to worry about but you might get a highly aggressive female at one time or another but you can just separate that female from the rest of the females but yeah definitely keep male bettas separate of they will hurt each other badly or it can even result in the death of one of them but yeah bettas they are pretty amazing they have a completely different character if you need help on finding a betta to purchase there is a site called aquabid that sells all kinds of bettas that is were I have gotten some of mine from I hope this helps you some what if you have any other info you need let me know.
