Rock Anemone. There almost impossible to kill. I have seen mine thrive through conditions that would kill a elephant. I picked mine up at the trop. The trop usually has a huge selection of some very cool rock anemones. I have a red rock anemone its pretty sweet looking. If you view my profile you will see what it looks like as my profile pic.

People telling you something isn't easy to keep is not a negative post. People want you to succeed and most of all don't want to see an animal die from lack of knowledge/care. If you want to be informed, you have to accept that what is the right information may not be what you want to hear:)

You need to wait until the tank is at least 6 months old. I say this because they are very sensitive animals, and you need to have all of the husbandry down before getting one. Other animals are a little more forgiving and can take the ups and downs that come with learning how to care for a tank. Once you have that down and parameters are consistently (for several months) perfect, then I would try a bubble tip anemone. Also be sure that you have the proper lighting to keep one of these creatures. Finally, they WILL move in your tank, and keep in mind that they can sting other corals and kill them, and may choose to plant themselves on top of corals. It wasn't worth the risk for me and my prized corals. My clown is just as happy to host my frogspawn:)

These are great! I forgot about them. If you want something for a clown to host, they will not host rock or flower anemones but they are pretty.

Trop does have some very nice Rock nems but, Out of the 30+ or so they had. Only two (2) were available for purchase and neither of the two were the ones I wanted. There was no negotiation and no timeframe as to when the others would be available.
