Looking good!
Been collecting for about 3 years, been hard as don't come up often in the UK. Found someone local who i think was importing from Aqua SD.

There kept in a 30"x20"x8"tall 50 litre (15 US gallons) tank with filtration in the rear. It's lit with dual Kessil A360w. I use black gravel as a substrate which is great as it's very easy to spot and move baby anemones. I've probably had over 100 born in my tank but alot seem to just dissappear which is annoying.

I've had a few problems recently with flatworm and some of my anemones melting which i still haven't found the cause of.

Only one fish - regal damsel. Only inverts are stomatella snails and mini brittlestars

Here are some of babies born in my tank

2xpink, 1 green, 1 orange and 1 orange/yellow



And current crop of youngsters

Those are beautiful specimens. Love all that color. I have RFA's and I'm hoping to set up a larger tank for them so I can get some more. What do you feed yours? Do you sell your babies?

I feed them mysis, lobster/fish eggs and reef roids. I haven't sold any babies yet, my plan is to build up a nice breeding stock then start selecting the nicest specimens to continue breeding and sell the rest....this is probably a several year plan as the babies grow very slowly. I've enjoyed seeing what colours pop up in the babies.

wow now I'm jealous , After my trigger went ballistic on all my RFA I moved what survived over to my reef that was around 4 , I intend on buying another bunch sometime once my pockets have a few extra bucks in them ,
the remodel downstairs killed me 3 months and still doing the finishing touches,
yet some how I still find time for my tanks , I miss my big impulse buys every month on my tanks . boy I spoil myself.

Wonderfully detailed pics! Glad you are here!

Love the little sunshine orange and yellow baby, though ALL of the RFA grown and babies are amazing.

Too many things happening and the last one on the list for me is that SW tank upgrade. Finding the time to move everything is difficult atm.

My one little guy was really happy the last 2 days as I moved my light on the tank to a different position which it seems to really like and opened up about 1/3rd more than usual.

These RFA are just the best!!! Love them!

That was great to see the changing - still pretty much the same but a little different with gaining on maturity.

Don't forget to share any more cool pics!
