Ritteri's are extremely difficult to keep. Besides, they get huge...way to big for a 55 IMO.

I agree with Larry. A ritteri is the last anemone I would suggest especially as a first anemone.

Absolutley too big for a home tank IMO. I had a long tentacle that was getting too big for my 125 before it sudenly died. No more anemones for me. Most should be left in the sea where they can live long (very long) lives as opposed to the typical 6 months to a couple of years in our tanks.

My clowns were frantic when the anemone died but ended up settling in a hammer and are quite content with that.

If you absolutely have to have an anemone, do a google search for "clown fish and anemones"....
Anemones and Clown Fish and Clownfish Host Anemones for a list of which anemones are most likely to host which clown fish.

What anemones maintain a managable size?

No problem I wouldn't put anything that would hurt my reef or even get to big... I would take suggestion on some cool anemone or coral....
