    Would like to understand the chemistry of their outputs through water circulation what is the area of benifit to my tank of their keeping
    what are there most likely enemies
    what do they trade their stock of food
    beaded anemone are serious pollution creater in nature(is it true?)
    you tell
    like amonia secreation by anyway
    or what is their speed of generating waste
    by the truth my name is stalion goeng
    and you?

    a 30 gallon tank in my opinion is too small for most anemones. The common types in the hobby such as a rose/green bubble tip often if healthy can reach upwards of 12 inches across when fully inflated as can a long tentacle anemone can also get that big. A carpet anemone can get even bigger. These anemones are not fussy on what they will sting and some are even fish eaters.......my lta killed and tried to consume my foxface rabbit fish. Condylactis anemones ARE fish eaters and though they don't get as large also sting anything they can reach. Tube anemones are also big stingers.

    Anemones are photo dependant that means that you must have sufficient lighting to support them as they gain most of their nutrition from the light through their zoanthelle with supplemental feeding of meaty fish pieces approximately every two weeks or so depending on the actual specimen's requirements. They do not like a lot of flow though flow is necessary to bring food to them. Their biggest threat is powerheads....more than one anemone has been shredded by a powerhead. especially in a small tank where they are unable to get away from the powerhead if they are large.

    My advice is that unless you have a large tank, stable and pristine parameters and high lighting I would pass on one......
