Yeah it’s amazing how different they all are. Some look like some of the adults in the tank but others have colors none of the adults have.

I'd love to know how their genetics work as to what colors they end up with

Read all 96 pages after I got two RFAs last week, great info. I plan to set up a RFA Pico in the next few weeks. Here are my two, not super rare but unique in their own way. 20180714_155954.thumb.jpg.12dfe6fb8f3e4beb878f9141b14beb30.jpg20180715_160006.thumb.jpg.51096aaa1d27835df800f3c88de21e3e.jpg20180715_155959.thumb.jpg.c77ac970de174bcad1ecac91ff1073f6.jpg20180716_171815.thumb.jpg.5b077373af53437eec06dd9abf802337.jpg

I just stopped at the store and bought three more, will update with pictures when they are open. I'm in love with these guys. The lfs has three more I will probably buy. All normal Florida rock nems but I like the white skirts.

One of mine is pissed I moved his rock. He decided to float over to where I moved it lol. And of course it's in the back left corner. He's such an ass lol.

I've been trying to find a RFA like this 1 for years but have never seen one for sale yet 😥 but I guess they say the hunt is half the fun 😕

So here are some pictures of the new nems. At the store there isn't any blue light on them so they look pretty bland. In the tank they look amazing, lots of neon-ish color around the mouth and tentacles. 

 

This guy was a little pushy at first...

Is it just me or do these tentacles look like sexy shrimp?

Also, set up a Pico for a friend and she picked out a RFA of her very own, I added it to the tank for her today. 20180721_140952.thumb.jpg.289681d8a3149296d4aaa6cca6bf4987.jpg20180721_140926.thumb.jpg.03cc9ab6020028d738f16c5175705ade.jpg20180721_141004.thumb.jpg.a169d43f4bf25099ae7bdab9a6bc7deb.jpg
