I have a green one that positioned himself right on top of a rock.

That's a mini-maxi, not a rock flower. But it's still nice nem!

You both are right. That's what happens when you have ADD, you can't pay attention to details. Lol.

Well, I've finally done it! I've been working on this for a couple months and today it's finally happened. I've been making modifications to my pod breeding tank to support RFAs and try to breed them. I partitioned off the chaeto, heater and filter in the back 1/3 of the tank. In the front 2/3s I changed sand out to black (so I can see babies easier) and installed a PAR 38 bulb. Last weekend I added the nem from my display and today I got her 3 more buddies. Can't wait to see if they spawn. Side note, only one baby survived in my display and I really feel like it's largely due to being unable to reach and feed the babies regularly like I have this one. I'm hoping this tank will not have that issue since there are no caves or large rock structures to work around.

I think the reason I lost my beautiful frilly one was because it went under the rock work so far. I am pretty crushed about that still.

I still have my brownish one. I feed him once a week with the Oyster feast. But I think I will try something else this next purchase. Many of the chunks were pretty big and I am not sure the fish and critters got too much at a time. The big pieces just plunk out so you aren't too sure how much you are gonna get - though in thinking, I guess I could dose it into a cup first and if I get too much put some back...just don't really like the chance of contaminating it, then the bottle.

Yours are looking great. Excited to see if you can get the babies to really take off this way. They are still one of my very favorites!

Do you or anyone else think I should target feed him more frequently? He gets anything that falls in from feeding the fish and other inhabitants as well.

The dry foods are varied: meaty, omnivore, algae based.

Frozen are Mysis, bbs, bs, Tubifex (occasionally a little bit, for the Clowns) one other I can't recall atm.

Everyone, what are you feeding to yours and how often?

I was feeding a piece of frozen table shrimp or scallop about the size of her mouth (thawed for a while) about 2 times a week. About a month ago I bought a frozen mix and now feed her a squirt of it about every other day, she probably gets a mysis or two and then some cyclopeez and fish eggs. I've heard that LPS pellets every other day are good for them but I haven't gotten any yet, I may order some soon because I think it eliminates a little but of extra food waste in the tank.

There isn't any need to feed like that. The lights should be all it needs. If it catches something at random, consider it a treat.

I've read differently for RFAs, especially if you want them to grow fast and spawn. Although I want to stress not to over feed because I've heard that can't kill them by food rotting in their stomachs. Here's a good read if you are interested in RFAs.

If you want to grow anything faster you should feed it...but this is something that most of us hobbyists get in trouble! We drown our tanks with liquid foods for coral or daily feedings for larger LPS or anemone and our systems can't handle it or our husbandry habits can't keep up. This includes even myself as I have made some bone headed moves that only increased the algae issue I've been battling.
