    I saw some pictures of tube anemone and love it, could someone tell me:
    1) I have a pretty active CBB in tank, will it nip or eat or bother the TA?
    2) Is it required to be buried in sand? I have sallow sand bed mostly 1", or do I need a piece PVC pipe for that purpose?
    3) Anything special about care of this animal?

    I've kept several and they have always been hardy in my experience. I have always direct fed them occasionally though. They do need some sand but are pretty adaptable. I saw them in rock tidepools in the sea of Cortez where they only had a bit of sand and they seemed ok. That's not a long term observation though.

    They do tend to spread out fairly large, so plan some room for them, they can sting stuff.

    I've heard CBB will nip at them. When I had a CBB it would nip all the little tube worms i had on the rocks.

    Should I resist this? Due to my CBB. I thought it is pretty.

    Resist...and tell me where you saw this! >) lol Do you have little tube worms on your rocks already? if you do and dont notice your CBB touching them you may be ok. Beautiful.

    I am thinking to get it, if my CBB cause trouble I will sell to another member. This one is not very cheap so it won't be free transfer but I will take some loss myself in that case.
