Default bubbletip anemone

Will my false percula eventually adopt to the bubbletip anemone??

This is what my anemone looks like...

Hi Kuza Beautiful pic!

I'm no expert in saltwater fish, but from what I have read your percula is more likely to host an anemone that is preferred in their natural habitat, but if nothing else is in there they may take to it, can depend on the clown.

Apparently their favourites are: the Carpet Anemone, Ritteri, Saddle, and lastly the Bubble Tip.

The water in my tank has already been cycled. I bought the salt water from my local pet shop and was told to cycle the water for a week and the aquarium should be ready to be stocked by the 7th day.

Kuza..........Apparently you haven't done any research. Your LFS is misleading you. I hate the thought that anything you put in your tank is doomed to a cruel death.

Sadly misinformation is very common in the fish keeping world and what makes it worse is who sold you the lovely living creatures does not have a clue on educating the buyer properly. I know this because it happened to me.

kuza the bubble tip is beautiful. Has your clown taken to it yet? IMHO If I were you I would do a lot of research and plan on upgrading your tank to a larger size as soon as you can. Anemones can be a challenge to keep.

Kuza.....Take the amemonie back to the store, do the research, and set up a lot of made up saltwater to do many water changes to hopefully keep the pecula alive until the tank "really" cycles. It would probally be wise to take the pecula back to the store also. Please give a complete description of your tank: substrate, filtration, lighting, water flow. Is there any liverock in it? Do you have a marine ph kit, nitrite, and nitrate kit? Do you have a hydrometer? What are the conditions of the water now? What temp are you keeping the tank at? Are you going to use tap water or ro/di for make up water? What is the ph, hardness, alkilinity, of the tap water? I could go on with the questions, but all of the above should have been answered before you put the first creature in your tank.
