    I have the Strawberry Anemone (or Club Tipped anemone) growing in my tank. At this point its very small. Anyone had experience with this? According to what I read it can spread --how much, I don't know. It eats copepods.

    Did you get it as a hitch hiker? If so, it probably won't live long. They aren't known as a pest anemone, so if you can keep it happy, congrats.

    Yes, a hitchhiker but I've put no rock in my tank since last spring. So how did it get in there? I see a lot of stuff growing on snail shells - could that be it? Maybe it was gorwinf for months but too small to be seen?

    Probably too small to be seen. It's been growing slowly all this time.
