Finally got my Blue Carpet after 2 years of looking! Made a trip to the city for a computer and came home with a carpet.

My blue, that had a powder/brighter color as posted above, has slowly darkened, and now has a geen to keep it company.

Look much better, Totlxtc, a beautiful royal blue. Mine went through that color for about two weeks, then continued to darken on up.

Great picture, trueblackpercula! Just how big IS that gigantea?

I think you mean "very nice Stichodactylae" Four years of Latin I need to use it somewhere You realize, of course, that what we are saying is "very nice sticky fingers"

Yeah, ae ,thanks for correcting me, BonsaiNut. I had a feeling this latin name had something to do with being "sticky". I took Spanish- no Latin. I wonder if I'd been pronouncing it right: stik-o-dak'-ta-la. Am I wrong?

Yes, can't argue language with a guy that mastered Latin and has a quote from an Oxford language professor in his signature.

Pronunciation of scientific terms is somewhat messed up. For example "stichodactyla" isn't really Latin at all, but Greek. "Y" did not even occur in the Latin language, but rather was used only with Greek loan words. Additionally, there are all kinds of English words that people toss a Latin ending on and suddenly they become Latin terms (Haddoni or Mertensii, for instance). However they are used as Latin terms, so I suppose Latin pronunciation rules apply even though an English pronunciation would be more familiar. You are close on your stichodactyla pronunciation - it should be stik-o-dak-TEE-la. However the "TEE" sound is funky and doesn't occur in English. Try to make a long "e" sound with your lips pursed instead of spread. It is pronounced like the French or German [y:].

BTW, mispronunciation is pretty broadly accepted on some words. For example, the pronunciation of "Gigantea" should NOT be "gee-GANT-ee-ah" but rather "ghee-ghan-TAY-a" (there is no soft "g" in Latin). But no one pronounces it that way.

I leave you now to go check out my lat-ez-o-NAH-tee.

Whew... good thing I can avoid pronunciations and just stick to spellings! Thanks for the crash course.

Loserland vtsureshot- Nice Stichodactylae. This brings up a good question. I know that certain foods can 'color up' my fish with their color enhancing ingredients. Why wouldn't these foods have an effect on anemone coloration? I've noticed that my Haddon's anemone will shape itself similar to a baseball glove to catch drifting plankton-like foods when I simulate a bloom. {I feed my anemones small VibraGro pellets, frozen mysid, frozen HUFA enriched brine and Cyclop-eeze, in addition to larger meatier foods.}

I just soke all food in Reef Solutions first and then dump it in the tank. I also add 3 ML of Reef Solutions to the tank daily. Since I started doing that everythings' color had gotten much better!

Here is mine, it's been in the tank for a couple of days now. My Ocelleris still prefer my torch coral.

Very tempting and beautifull. However, carpet are hard to keep and demand good water quality and strong lighting. beginners please refraint from running out and get one for yourself as you will more than likely to waste your money and a beautifull animal.

Dont do it the hard way.

Depends what kind of carpet. S. gigantea is extremely demanding, however S. haddoni is somewhat forgiving in its care and habitat. Make sure you understand your species - I have seen 5 different species of anemones all called "carpet anemones" at the LFS.

Check out the anemone FAQ.

All anemones presently in my reef aquarium originated as hitch-hikers or from trades with other RC'ers. Here's my latest acquisition. A 4" diameter variegated Haddon's anemone.
