QUICK STATS
  • Care Level: Easy
  • Reef Compatible: No, will overgrow
  • Max. Size: 2 cm


Why the Glas Anemon is a plague, well, that's because they multiply very fast and sting very bad. You can inject boiling water in them. Use a needle and try to inject it in the "head" or "neck".
There are some fish and shrimps who have the glas anemon on their menu: Acreichthys tomentosus, Chelmon marginalis, Lysmata wurdimanni

First one found in the crab tank, hopefully I can kill it before it becomes a plague.
