Gray Saltwater
Another saltwater question pertaining to anenomes.?

I have 2 anenomes in my 55g sw tank. I have a long-tentacled anenome and a bulb or tulip anenome (i don’t know the actual name) The long-tentacled anenome has moved its way over to the other anenome’s rock. I have heard that anenome are territorial and cannot be by each other. My long-tent. is not looking a little gray. Should I separate them? Why is he turning grayish?

I have had several anenome’s and they will go where they want and it is useless to move them. Being your tank is fairly new I would be surprised if they do well. They usually take a well cycled and set up for a while tank. They do not at all stand out of parameter water. Long tentacles are hard to to keep as they prefer a cleaner and cooler water than most. The Condactylus anenome (which is probally your other) are the cheap ones that sting and eat alot of fish are easier to keep but not as appealing to clowns. Most of mine always ended up in a power head. They will go through phases of color and sometimes shrink away and come back. Carpet anenomes are the best I ever had to survive and hold clowns.
