tidepooldreamer Posted November 28, 2022 Share Posted November 28, 2022 As the title says, one of my RFAs has buried himself totally in the sand the last 2 nights in a row. I know this is normal behavior for them as a defense if they get bothered, and he came back out all of today and looked perfectly normal. It just seems a little weird to me for him to do it twice in quick succession. I have 2 RFAs - the bigger one was added 11/4 and the smaller one who is burying on 11/15. Everything else in the tank looks normal and unbothered, including the other nem. Since he is small, I wonder if maybe it's my hermit or a snail walking over him that's disturbing him? He's about 1" across fully open. Is there anything else I should be checking in response to this behavior? Thanks! Here's both of them from this afternoon. I don't think the anemone crab is causing the problem - he lives in a rocky cave above them and doesn't seem very interested in the nems themselves. I've seen him go down and touch the bigger one once before going back to his place on the rock. 1 Quote Link to comment
