    try adding some small cut PVC tubes about 1 or 2 inches tall should do. The anemones will like putting the foot in there and it makes it easier to move them.

    Note -- I did try this. I cuts some PVC of various sizes between one and two-and-a-half inches. Turns out that very small Nems will move into the small ones -- and die. They get to the bottom and don't ever come up.

    woah... those look amazing

    I had a big bta and was hiding under the rocks, i didn't think much of it until i realizing it was going to kill itself by hiding there all the time. and it was too late when I flip the rock for it to bake under the light.

    OMG -- I've been looking all over for someone with a DV nem (...and a black widow)

    Appreciate it if you would please keep me in mind for a split of either or both...

    It is indeed.

    They make it to liveaquaria and a few other spots every now and then... but we all locally know it as DV

    Plus I had to save them. They were rescues -- or something. I got them from Jerry and Kim and asked for cheapies. They are like grade F or something -- so I had to save them!

    Very specific lineage... I highly doubt Live Aquaria gets their hands on the DPV.

    Agreed on lineage. DPV as well call it is a very specific and local strain... though purple with green tips is not isolated to DPV.... sometimes sold as "joker" BTA elsewhere.

    I personally would love to have a DPV confirmed strain for nosalgic reasons...(I use to go through DPV often in the early 2000s) but did manage to get my hands on a suspected DPV strain just today :)
