    Ok, it's definitely a Majano. They have a poisonous sting. It's exactly like this one that has been ID'd/confirmed as Majano.

    "
    These small anemones are a frequently encountered pest anemone. They are very similar to Aiptasia anemones. If left unchecked they could soon reach plague proportions in the tank. Their sting is very potent and should be eradicated as soon as possible.

    Joes Juice is reported to work and is simply to apply using a syringe. If you can remove the rock then application of hot soldering iron can also be tried. A mixture of kalk can also work, if applied with a syringe.

    Hey C-BuZz - how goes your pest Majano's ?

    Also are you still running your peliter chiller? any tips etc? I'm definitely going to build one, had my tank crash due to heat issues. Now it's just a FOWLR until I can get some chilling going on!

    Still haven't removed them. Been to lazy :lol: Will do it eventually. I've been using the chiller for the last 3-4 months as Melbourne has seen quite a few >35c days. I can say it has definitely saved the entire tank pretty much every single day. Without it, the water temps would easily be >30c. With it running 24/7 the water temps stay ~26c regardless of ambients.

    Coraline is going to cover the entire front of the tank soon. Will have to start removing it :lol:

    07-08-2013. One of the clowns mysteriously disappeared. No idea where it went to, just vanished. Got rid of most of the pest anemones.

    Skimmer gone. Really no need in such a small tank. Mini chiller still working beautifully :leet: I only turn in on over hot summer days.

    As in the filter?

    i remember seeing dodgy peltier as your chiller???
    i think it was yours. yer, if it is, just wondering if its still running was all :)

    i dont even know what a skimmer does?? skim protein, but that means less than zero to me.hehehe. salt has extra proteins now?nfi?

    Yeah, the dodgy peltier is still running :thumbup:

    Skimmer skims the shit out of the water. But in a small tank like that, rubbish/filth doesn't get the chance to build up in the water like it does in larger tanks so it's pointless.

    Wow.. this thread is still kicking from 2009! Awesome!

    So I'm temporarily housing an electric yellow until someone takes it off my hands, and then this 90L is finally going to be converted into a marine tank.
    My son has taken a liking to the fish I had earlier in the year, so we're thinking of upgrading to something more vibrant and intriguing for him.

    I see you still have the AR-620 going strong, which is the tank I have.

    It's been a long, long time since I've read up on marine tanks for beginners.
    Where's the best place to go to now?

    Heya, yeah it's been going for a while now & been through quite a few transformations :lol:

    I don't actually read any marine forums anymore (not for the last few years anyway) so not really much help. The AR-620 still going although I have replaced many items on it including the light/pump/filter's & some tubing as well due to corrosion/deterioration of the pipes.

    It's all been worth it, the kids/adults love it when they visit & I still look/gaze at it daily very relaxing.

    I would highly recommend going marine as the colours & variety is endless compared to goldfish or tropicals. To be honest once the tank is up & running it requires very little maintenance.
