Forgive my bluntness, but how much did you pay for your RFAs? I'd like to get 1-3, but my LFS is charging $75 for a rather plain looking one. I understand they have to turn a profit, but that seems quite steep.  Should I start looking for one elsewhere? 

The price varies.

 

Rfa's look plain under white light, the colour pops under blue.

 

I purchased a few from a local hobbiest which ranged from $20- 30. That was the green ones and blue with red.

 

The dark orange/red was $59

 

The orange and yellow was $75

 

The orange with yellow mouth and dark green and red were both $30 

 

 

The fancy rfa's here range between $59- $195

 

 

Try finding local hobbiests selling them or try online sources. $75  for green is high.

Major changes happened last weekend.

 

I have wanted an anemone only tank so this weekend we did a major overhaul.

I shut down my 5.5g and converted my 10g into an anemone tank

I love this new direction! Anemones remain a curiosity of mine, I haven't kept one since my very first saltwater tank.

My clown has been super curious of 1 particular RFA, the big plain green one. hovers above it and stares at it. Everytime I try to get a pic, he leaves.

Haha I don't know why I find this so funny. Decision fatigue with a tank full of anemones, poor guy 😄

New additions to my tank.

 

2 anemone shrimp and a FBTA.

 

I couldn't resist, it was just too pretty.🤣

 

Moved my acans out of the tank, 2 got damaged by the dragon soul so they are repairing in my pico jar.

 

I also changed the pump to the mighty jet and added an rfg nozzle. 

I did have a fish guard on the overflow but it was causing the surface to not clear, so out it went.😁

Gorgeous anemone. Whats the size of the thing? I feed mine only once/week and it’s doubled in size over the last few months.

 

Edit; maybe three times as I just look at these picsAF62BDEC-32B2-43E6-BE59-B5598EB78DF7.thumb.png.2676b44dde5b276f08dbfd55334179b2.png

Anemones are so fun to watch. 

 

My  rbta has lightened in colour and decided to go where the rbta was. I guess it prefers less light because it chose a weird area of the tank and stretches to the light.. The rbta was not happy to have a neighbour so it moved. 

 

Of course my rfa moved to the back dark side of the tank because the rbta was next to it. I hope it moves to the front, it's so pretty and its in the dark.

 

Xenia are indestructible! They grow amongst the rfa's and bta's, I 've had to prune them. I thought the anemones would destroy them...nope.

 

I  removed all the brains, my acans got damaged from the favia, there just wasn't enough room for them with the anemones.

 

Everything else is pretty normal. The clown and blenny are best buds, swim together all day long. When the blenny perches the clown follows.

 

My clown now hosts the back wall. He was hosting the favia, has no interest in the bta's.

Ive found my quad colored nems like to be lower in the tank with my lighting as well. They seem so happy and fluffy down there😊
