    I bought it from a wholesaler near LAX over 2 1/2 years ago when it was much smaller.

    I dug up some old pictures of it back in May 2010.



    With the metal halides off and taken with flash:








    Here's a red haddoni I had.

    What happened to the red? Those are so expensive, like $500 aren't they?

    My dad had a carpet anenome in his saltwater tank when I was little. The thing ate almost every fish in the tank.

    Yup, that's what they're known for. Sometimes they will even eat clownfish, it isn't uncommon... But they're super awesome. The stings are terrible and they're super sticky. Some people have gotten bad rashes from them, but I never got any problems with even my soft skin touching anemones. Then again, never had a carpet. They're like super nems.

    It died when I moved it to another tank. A red that size can fetch $450 - 500 and sometimes much more if the color was a deeper red. Fortunately, I can get them from the wholesalers for almost half that price.

    The tank with the blue carpet used to have a bunch of fish. One by one, over time, they all disappeared until I'm left with one lone platinum clown. I don't get a bad reaction from the anemone's sting but it does feel weird.
