THis guy is selling a brand new eclipse 25 gallon for 100. is that a good deal? he is also selling 29 gallons for 160. and they are both brand new. He told me to make my decision fast since there are people that wanted to buy them..so could you guys tell me if he is tricking me into buying it or he is being honest. And witch is a better deal ?

Try giving some foods (chopped meats) to the anemones and at the same time not giving any to your clowns. Clowns are very2 greedy so they'll try to take the foods away from the anemones. After a while they should be playing with them.

oh yeah make sure your clowns notice when you give the foods to the anemone. Anemone will wrap itself fast when given meaty foods.

it is not very meaty but it's good too since it will move frantically in pain (ouch) after it gets stung by the anemone, which is good because the clowns will notice there's live food in it.

I hope its not to late for the tanks what comes with the tanks anything or are they just the tanks? As far as the clowns not playing with the anenome, are they tank raised clowns? Some tank raised clowns will not take to an anenome. Also what kind of clowns and what kind of anenmone? Certain kinds of clowns take to certain anenomes. Some clowns just live for anenmomes where some will never take to one. For meaty foods that is consideres as clam, squid, shrimp, chunky types of food.
