    Here is my tank. Need new lights but just started to convert a fish only to a reef. The tank was moved after it was left alone for a few months by the guy before me so I lost the 3 fish he had in it. It cycled and is now going strong again.

    This thread is so long that we can post photos of the same tank, one year after down the track and they will be totally different tanks.

    Takes a lot of patience!!! and the number one thing is STABILITY... take it from me in not proud of it but I've lost a couple of really nice specimens over the years, due to over feeding and impatientce. And that's just on the human side as in my errors.

    Mechanicaly I finally decided to go against everything I had been doing prior to my success.
    1. The most important for me was Automatic top off, RBTA hate salinity swing and I mean HATE them IMO.
    2. I stoped feeding and target feeding my RBTA altogether, letting it grab food on its own.
    3. I made sure before intruducing a pair of clownfish that the RBTA found a spot where it was happy and feeding on its own.
    4. After doing this for about 2 months I introduced a pair of clowns that was much smaller than the anemone to start.

    I have had clownfish host a nem to death a couple of times stressing them out.

    5. Keeping perameriters and feeding habits and lights all on a set schedule. However feeding not so important.
    6. FLOW!!! I upgrading to an eco drift to stimulate natural wave patterns!!! All my corals responed tremendously.
    7. Watch for phosphate! I run a phosban reactor 150 on my 75g
    8. Make sure your tank is established and ready for an anemone!
    9. As mentioned early lighting is very important! a decent LED or T5HO will do.

    After doing all this I have been very successful and happy with keeping anemones as I now have 3! My Bali rose is fully bubbled constantly next to my black rose which is hosting my clowns! Trying out a GBTA now so far so good!

    Hope this helps!!! ;)
