I'm pretty biased as my #CSB is my favorite.

The idea is to spread them around the house so its less obvious. I was surprised that I had 8 when I counted them.
Sounds like this plan doesn't work if you live in an apt. LOL

I'm ok with just getting what I ordered and making sure that's a success before I do anything else. From what I read, CSB don't do well with other BTAs in the tank anyways. :')

You can’t go wrong with a beautiful BTA although I don’t and won’t ever have one. I like my corals too much
i love them but they are a pain in the butt. now if i can glue them down i might change my mind. my bta has made a 360 degree journey aroung my two rock formations, in between the rock formations, disappears from site for a week or two and then reappears on the other side of the tank

1. What's your favorite type of anemone and why?
BTA’s for sure! My first anemone that I got was a rainbow BTA and I absolutely love the different color types BTAs come in (even though a lot of other anemones are just as beautiful too) :)

2. How many anemones do you currently have?
Ive been slowly collecting different types of anemones and mixing them in the same system. Currently in the system I have:
-15+ Rainbow BTAs
-3 Rose BTA (questionable because the color is more orange in person but was sold to me as a Rose)
-1 Black widow BTA
-1 Rasta BTA
-1 Green LTA
-1 Purple LTA
-2 Chicago Sunburst BTA
-5 Rockflower anemones
-1 Orange tube anemone

I absolutely love anemones and this hobby. I may also have a slight problem when it comes to collecting anemones and coral .

I had to choose other since the ones all offered to vote on each had their " favorite" spot I found n me. Beauty, flowey, big small, and it goes on for me so I'm sorry but couldn't pin just 1 down. They all have their spots for me.

When I see questions about nems my first thought is always "I'd love to have one but I'm not sure I'm ready for one". But last night I got results for an AquaBiomics test on my nano tank and was reminded that I've been keeping anemones successfully for close to 9 months. My pom pom crab! And really I love those little nems! I've watched her cradle them in her other legs while she worked at something with her claw before picking them up again. She takes great care of them. They are full and have grown and she waves them hypnotically as she wanders the tank. Flashy? No. Big? No. But totally cool anemones!

I have a Hawaiian Red anemone I purchased years ago. It’s been through many pit falls of tanks. Wry well behaved, it doesn’t move. It’s lavender and very sticky on body, like the toys kids used to throw against the wall. At times it gets red color on the tips and a couple stripes. It’s my water meter, if it doesn’t come out something is up.
