    Default hidden anenome

    I just got a bubble tip anenome and it keeps moving to under the rocks and hard to reach places. It will be difficult to feed . Can I use a metal tweezers to place the food near its mouth? I heard somewhere that you can only use plastic in a salt h20 tank and no metal. Is that correct?
    Also don't you need at least a ph of 8 for the anenome
    Thanks for your insight

    I would use a plastic turkey baster. he will eventually come on sooner or later as long as the water quality is good and the lighting is good.

    I couldn't stand it anymore. It hid at the very bottom and back of the tank behind the live rock. I finally had to remove several rocks to access its happy home and I returned it to the fish store and exchanged it for frogspawn coral. I love the coral. It does not move and resembles an anenome sort of.
