    You are exactly right. I think we just assumed (big mistake) that a LFS would be the best place to go. We have ordered a few items from reefs2go and honestly...they have worked out the best. We visited 3 different LFS's today and we asked the same question to all 3...believe it or not...we recieved 3 different answers. At the end of the day, we were just shaking out heads.:rolleyes:

    yea it is a just a job to some of them, you really have to do your research, But did they charge you as it being a bubbletip??? or did they just tell you they would host oneanother??

    I just pulled the receipt and it states it's a Condy. I would have had no idea what hosted a clownfish but as I said, I specifically asked for an anemone to host my maroon. They are closed tomorrow but I'm sending my husband back to the LFS to ask why they sold me a Condy when I asked for a host.

    Make sure you get a bubble if they have one, they will host one anther. and when you go back to the LFS and take the Condi back I bet you they give you 1/3 of what you paid for it.

    I would bet money that I don't get anything for the anemone. It's frustrating to say the least. I will make sure my husband updates everyone on what kinda money we get back!!! Thanks for all the suggestions.

    You will have to keep an eye on that anemone.Its awfully small for that clown and he could cause a sever injury while rubbing in it.

    Yea. Too much rubbing can be a bad thing.
