Hello Everyone! After much help from our fellow reefers and the rest of the reefing communities around the world, I was able to compile an Anemone Compatibility Sheet!

This Sheet Addresses the Following:
  1. Which Anemones can be housed and touch in an aquarium (listed with )
  2. Which Anemones can NOT touch each other (and is not recommended to be housed together either) (listed with X)

And here is the most up to date draft

AnemoneCompatibilityList7-18-16.PNG


Special Thanks To: @ja4207 @Nemguy123 @Psiber_Syn @DeepSeaPhilosopher @4FordFamily @OrionN , and the many other users whom have contributed
and all of the Moderators for making this Sheet happen! The Research is still continuing at the moment.

Condylactis gigantean + Epicystis crucifer = OK (thank you for the input @Psiber_Syn )
Heteractis malu + Entacmaea quadricolor = OK (Found this out from another thread on here, if it is you please state your name)
