ASAP Please - RBTA and anemone crab deal

My lfs has a 2-3 inch RBTA and anemone crab combo for $55. The anemone is bleached but has bright pink tips and the crab is about an inch. Lfs closes in two hours and I won't be near it for a while.

Should I get these guys? Seems like a great deal and I'm willing to nurse the RBTA back to health. Tank info should be in sig. I know it's a small tank, but I'm willing to rehome/split anemone when it needs to be.

Also have sexy shrimp and anemone combo for $40 with smaller RBTAs about an inch diameter. Better deal?

Thanks!

+1. I would go for the larger nem/crab. 120w LED should be strong enough to keep the anemone. From what I've read, pretty much all anemones are bleached to some extent by the time we buy them.

Yea, I read that most anemones are bleached too, and this LFS has some large RBTAs they've had for a while in the same tank so I know their water and lights must be good.

I ended up buying the crab and anemone (sexy shrimp was only available with a sebae anemone). The anemone immediately scooted into a rock crevice but the crab looks quite happy in his new home. Hopefully the anemone comes back out when it gets adjusted to my lights.

Yeah, when I got my anemone I put it where I thought would be best for it, but it spent the next day moving down and back, then stretched to front. Then few days ago, it moved right back to where I had placed it to begin with, right up top front!! maybe yours will come full circle too! Here's hoping!
