    So I've been poking around to try and find an anemone suitable for a 19g with small gobies/blennies and came accross Actinia tenebrosa aka "Red Waratah Anemone". They seem to be a good fit but I think they may be more suited to cooler water from what little info I have found. I'm sure someone around here must know or know where I can find some better info on them. tia

    Sounds like they are commonly found in cooler water but not always. So they may be ok in the 70's....

    •Minimum Tank Size / Length: 20 gallons (76 L) or more
    •Marine Lighting - How much light for anemones: Moderate
    •Temperature: 35° - 82° F (2° - 28° C), depending on the species
    •Salinity / Specific Gravity: 1.021 to 1.027
    •Water Movement: Moderate

    Cool water (should do fine 68F - 72F), Grow like pests when fed often, non-photosynthetic. May or may not eat fish.
