    That light is fine for low light corals. Anemones would probably want the version of that light with 2 bulbs (and twice the wattage). An anemone would probably also appreciate at least 10 more gallons of water in your tank, lol. Anemones need super stable water conditions in order to be happy...I think a lot of people would advise against putting one in a 10g.

    I think the live sand and Live aragonite is all a waste of your money. Just get regular carib sea sand and stuff and it will come alive within your tank after a few weeks.
    If we think logically here, real live sand has real live bacteria that survive on waste products and other chemicals in your water.
    So how can "live sand" and bacteria be bagged up and sit on a store shelf at room temperature for weeks at a time? I would think they would die off since there is nothing supplying the bacteria with the necessary nutrients they need to survive.

    I would highly deter anyone from getting a anemone in a 10 gallon. I had one in a 10 gallon for about 2 weeks and it just went downhill after the 2nd day.
    This was in an aquarium that was 6 months old with a bunch of coralline. I have perfect magnesium, calcium, alk, and PH levels. I also have 130 watts of light over the tank too and plenty of flow and the thing was just not liking life. I also think I have learned a lot in SW aquariums which would make me not a beginner and I still had trouble with the anemone. I will just say there is plenty of other cool things you could put in your 10. If you had enough light and enough flow I think that a clam would be cool.

    I am also a little skeptical about the bagged live sand. I don't quite understand how those companies can claim that the beneficial bacteria is still viable after sitting in a bag that long (I always felt the same way about eco-complete for planted tanks). I can attest to the fact that the bagged live sand does not create a noticeable ammonia spike in tanks, but I do not know how much beneficial bacteria is present in the tank after the sand is added. I also know for sure that the baged live sand is a POPULAR product, and it is used by a lot of reefers (many of whom swear by it) so I felt inclined to include it in my post.

    I don't know how common this is, but there are a couple of LFSs' in my area that keep live sand in a curing tank (just like live rock), and they just scoop it out when you want some. That was what I was referring to when I mentioned "live sand from your LFS".

    You are definitely right that I should have explained that section of my post better, would you like to suggest a correction??? Maybe with a few edits, we can get this thing stickied (if that is a word) lol.

    Thanks Zack

    the carib sea sand is only 7 dollars less at my store so i just bought the "live sand" i think it looks better. I never understood how it stayed alive either, it has been in bags for months.
