    That is FAR from true.Thats an out right lie.
    Most anemone require more light than most corals.Without light,they starve to death.
    They are also more difficult to keep than most corals.They REQUIRE a stable tank with PRESTINE water conditions.

    a mature tank is considered around a year old

    Take the anemone back.It wont make it in a tank as young as yours.The parameters just arent stable enough.

    take it back. It wont survive and kill everything in tank. Tell them they gave you false information and it would be in their best interest to read up on things before opening a store and sell creatures they know nothing about. :Cheers:
