Got on another list for some common ones. LOL
They are beautiful but way over priced in my opinion.

That's absolutely rediculous. There is no way i would pay that. Its been my experience in the past that if they dont want to sell it they put realy high prices on it.

I agree! I would never pay that much (unless I won the lottery!), but they are nice to admire. Maybe one of my babies will look like it and it will be "free" 😀

Crazy on prices because you don't know how long it will live and no guarantees.

The bargain ones around here are the non florescence - so no vibrant colors and I would be just fine with some of those again. I gave away one of mine the little tan white green tinted one (thought I was shutting down all the SW tanks) and the frilly white pinkish one died. Reason I won't spend more than say $30 for a pretty one and the $10-15 for a plain one.

I will be headed out of town for about 10 days next month, maybe find some in my travels. Otherwise I will just chill till one/some pop up. lol.

About 2 years ago I read an article or two that stated people weren't really into them and they were cheap nearer the areas where the imports are received around Los Angeles and in Florida and the stores didn't really stock them because of higher interest in Zoas & Bubble Tip Anemones and low to no interest in RFA!!! Not now!

There have been a number of care/info sheet mentions of feeding meaty foods not just lighting and zooxanthellae.

What if anything are all of you feeding? Has anyone else noticed the wide variety of foods available, including live foods from AlgaGen. I am wondering if pods and little live micro foods would work. I am planning on getting a bunch of pods of a couple kinds to reseed my tank. Wondering if anyone has noticed them feeding on any particular kinds ( so I can be sure to get some!) Was planning on Tisbe pods...

My RFA will eat just about anything. They usually gets squirted with LRS reef frenzy and end up eating everything that sticks to them. They are very easy going anemones.

I feed a mixture of Rods reef food with some mysis and bryne shrimp mixed in. The RFA's usually will catch anything that floats by them or you can target feed them. I have seen mine grab a mysis shrimp floating by. I do try to make sure i squirt some close enough to them so they can grab some.

I agree, they will eat almost anything. I've heard LPS pellets are good because they add less waste to the water, but I haven't tried them yet. I put my RFAs in a tank I was breeding pods and mysis shrimp and I've seen a lot of stomatellas, I think the flowers catch what they can of those too.

I had been thinking about the neon green RFAs that were at the store when I picked up my last two, so decided to check today if they had any left and they did!! Here it is just put in.
