i have a neon green bubble tip anemone ive had almost a year now. My question is...how do you get them to grow? Mine is the almost the same size as when i bought it. It has been in the same spot for a long time but hasn't grown much at all. Are they slow growers or what? i feed it at least twice a week sometimes 3 times.

Lots of light, slightly dirty water, low flow.
Whats your tank and light?

You will regret this post in another year when thay little bta becomes a monster spreading out 12 inches wide! Lol.

I also have high flow with anemones. They live in the ocean. They can handle it as long as the powerhead is not pointed directly at them.

That should be plenty of light.
Both the btas found the lowest flow, highest light areas of the tank.

Then I need to ask what kind of lighting is it under? They can soak up a serious amount of light once acclimated. And as for feeding you don't have to do it very often if you have a lot of light.
 

What overall grade would you give to the whole class of online livestock vendors?
