I guess this will be my formal June FTS (unless a better one comes along later this month).

Sorry to hear.  The 2 I have are good.  I did lose 1 earlier on (like 1 week after I got it).  How long did you have yours?

Yeah, maxis are pretty tough.  I used to have quite a few of them back in the day and had zero probs keeping them happy.

I swear anemones are my money pit 💵 

I can’t keep them (yea theyll be fine for a week or two) but I have no problem with SPS

Thanks!  Yeah, I don't blame ya.  This thread is way too long.

 

And @748S911 is pretty much right; first like 30 pages are basically photos of an empty tank.  Lol.

Keeping it clean has been a lot of work, but worth it.  🙂

No.  Unfortunately I couldn't keep the dragon's breath in place with the Aqamai, so it was moved to my 20g.  Put the Hydor Pico Evo-Mag 180 back in.

Everything is in the tank now.

 

Picked up these 3 blue rics today at an LFS near me.

IMG_20190615_211721_527.thumb.jpg.a4779c5cd3f7c9f9fbb51989c244dd45.jpg

 

And finally found some green clove polyps.  They haven't opened up yet, so no photo.  They looked a bit pale to me under the LFS's metal halides.  Hoping they look better under my LEDs or will color back up over time.

 

The clove polyps did come with this hitchiker - a tiny baby maxi mini nem.  🤗

Gonna glue the cloves down to some rock later tonight.

Love the blue rics. Every time I buy interesting colored ricordea they always end up turning green. Not sure if its lights or chemistry.

Ricordea Florida are known for rapidly and permanently changing colors in new environments, everything from temperature to water chemistry or lighting/flow can have a dramatic impact from what I've read. (Mine stayed mostly yellow though so maybe not always?)

Yup. 

 

I've had Rics split and then change colour as I move the new Ricordea into a new spot.

 

Its down to lighting more than anything in my experience.
