Another thought occurred to me. In anemone culture farms, they compensate for lack of light by more frequent feeding. I just read a paper which says that DAILY feeding of protein (ideally with HUFA) such as pieces of fish or shrimp will enable a bleached anemone to recover in just a few months.
.....



Will this work with Bubble Anemone? Frequent feeding?

Paul,

I know that bleached anemones should recover their color through a combination of good lighting and frequent feeding. Honestly I don't really know if this alone (the daily feeding) will work. I just read about it from some guy in southern Sri Lanka who has an anemone farm, but I can't vouch if this is indeed true.

But in the case of Entot78, his anemone will surely die soon from insufficient lighting, so what does he have to lose by trying? :) :)

bale 2 months na po cya sa tank ko...originally 3 binili ko sa local fisherman dito sa davao pero itong isa nalang ang natira...

so far so good naman, matakaw kumain...diet nya at his first 2 weeks sa tank ko is nori lang, pero after adding the lipstick tang, kumakain na rin cya ng pellets na granumarin and pechay...and sometimes kinakain nya din ang mga dumi ng lipstick tang...hehehe...
:lol:
however, medyo pumayat nga lang yung moorish bro compared sa size niya nung binili ko cya...cgro kasi hindi natural na food yung nakakain niya sa tank ko... :?

bdw, yung moorish and lipstick tang somehow nag-bond sila kasi they always swim together na parang kambal tuko...hehehe...

yup...buti na lang wala masyadong natural disaster like mga bagyo dito sa davao... :P

with regard sa livestock hindi rin maganda dito dahil halos pare-pareho na lang ang binebenta nung binibilhan kong fisherman...kahit sa mga lfs dito hindi rin ganon kadami yung variety ng fishes available kasi dyan sa manila ang bagsak ng mga isda na galing daw dito...yung firefish goby nga lang for example halos 6 months na me naghahanap dito sa mga lfs pero wala daw supply kasi pinapadala daw sa manila... :(

pero tama ka rin with regard sa mga marine resources like LRs and LS dahil madali lang kumuha sa mga local beaches surrounding the city kasi very accessible sila...hehehe :wink:

your moorish look really sharp. :) but it needs a bigger tank, sana mabuhay sya.

Moorish idols are notorious for being difficult to maintain in captivity. They require enormous tanks, often exceeding 200 U.S. gal, are voracious eaters, and are infamous for becoming incredibly destructive. Their captive survival rate is very low: most do not survive for a full year. Most that live past this mark typically die shortly thereafter. It is not recommended that any aquarist attempt to keep this species, because it is considered cruel by many and is nearly impossible


i hope it's already feeding?

...Sponges, tunicates and other benthic invertebrates constitute the bulk of the moorish idol's diet. Captive kept moorish idols typically are very picky eaters. They will either eat nothing (most of them) and perish or eat everything (very uncommon).
