Green BTA seem to wander more than red (we have both in stock). Generic long tentacle seem to stay. Borneman anemones are very cool looking (in stock) split frequently, but may wander - we have not tried them in the Amenone Cradle but will do so now. Not sure if a crab wanders into them.

Looks like what I need with that said do you sell red or metallic open brain coral? Been looking for a while need a good red one as I have lots of green colored corals.

We have green with blue eye micromussa which are mini brain-like and great in like nano aquariums. Red blastomussa with green eyes. You may want to look at our red brick chalice for a super red coloration. Just type these names in our search bar. www.fishnreef.com.

This is awesome that someone came out with this! I know something like this works because i have a anemone that moved around a few times and the last time it found a very deep hole thats just wide enough for it. Once it found that hole it called it home for almost a year now. I think when this happens they get comfortable but also dont know how to get out of the hole..

I have four. The only that has moved is the original one that I have had for a year. He stays in one place for a month then moves. I have a small rock, a BTA and two long tentacle it's the LTA that moves doesn't bother anything at all even when he moves

How do you know what size to get because I have a rose anemone that keeps wandering everywhere that I just bought about 2 weeks ago

Looking at the anemone head size (tentacled part):

small - head is about 2"-3"
medium - head is 3"-6"
large - head is 6" - 10"
extra large - head is > 10"

Thanks.

I don't have this product but I can attest to having a bubble tip anemone stay put by giving it a hole like this to anchor into. I didn't know about this product but if I had I would have bought it instead of looking for a rock that already had a depression. Looks like a solid product to me

Knowing how people don't research often, you might want to put what anemones these will work with...just a suggestion

Apart from the large carpet anemones or smaller rock flower/mini carpet anemones, for which we can create a custom rocks - ask us, the Anemone Cradle will work (i.e. long tentacle, bubble tip, rock flower/Borneman, Ritteri, Sebae, Condi, Hatian, etc.). If in doubt, send us a note.

I think that's what they are asking though. For each of those anenomes which size would you recommend? For instance if someone is planning to purchase a BTA, which craddle would you recommend (assuming they are trying to buy a permanent home for it)?

Good clarifications. Sizing the cradle based on the size of the foot and base stem is a method that is independent of the type of the anemone. The hole in the anemone cradle is smaller than the area inside of the Anemone Cradle cavity which allows a good amount of surface area for a variety of anemone sizes. So a larger foot can fit inside a cradle with a smaller hole. Aesthetically, the anemone rising up from or covering the Anemone Cradle looks best. Looking at the foot, a rough guide would be:

Foot size about 1/2"- 1" - small
Foot size about 1" - 1 1/2" - medium
Foot size about 1 1/2" - 2 1/2" - large
Foot size about 2" - 4" - extra large

We can provide other sizes for larger anemones.

Hope this helps.

Agree with you. It is a good idea to wait a day in lower flow water for the anemone to attach to the Anemone Cradle.
