    Guys, sorry it took me so long to post here (haven't been able to see the topic for months!)

    This is not exactly a true statement, though it is close. Anemones will engage in chemical warfare, but I have never heard of them trying to 'ingest' one another. eventually, the anemone with the most powerful chemical emissions will win the war, which is why many reefkeepers say 'keep one type and never mix'. I would reccomend a BTA. (E. Quadricolor)

    Oh, and it is always a good idea to run carbon on any tank with lots of coral of any type, they all fight, and carbon helps!

    Hasn't anyone else ever seen a anemone swim? It's really quite interesting as they only have two sets of muscles which they can use to make that kind of motion. First one side contracts while the other relaxes, then it switches sides and before you know it that sucker is on the move!

    I have seen my e-quadricolor do some swimming, it is pretty cool to watch.

    I think I have seen too many L.T. and carpet anemones stay relatively stationary. The Cerianthus did seem to roam a little. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Do anemonies ever eat the other fish swimming around in the tank? Also if you get a clownfish too, does it usually form that symbiosis thing where it lives with the anemonie and things like that?
