    Hi being to to marine fish keeping I have so far a couple of soft corals and 3 small fish. I saw on eBay 6 anemones for £15 then read that these may kill my coral. Could someone advise me. Cheers

    Anemones pack quite a punch
    And can roam around your tank
    Mine once eat a coral beauty

    However nothing better than watching clowns snuggle in

    It also depends on what type of anemones they are, for that price they could well be be Beadlet anemones which are a cold water anemone and don’t belong/do well in a reef tank.

    Don't do it, they have been selling beadlet and snakelock nems on ebay for years. They are from the UK coastline and are not good for a tropical marine tank.
