Agreed! If you are going to do frequent target feedings then yes, you definitely have to be careful with both the accuracy of feedings and also a strict regimen of water change and cleaning.

Two more today, this is them acclimating. One pink and a baby red with a purple mouth, so pretty!! Excited to see the growth rate on the small one. Done for now on stocking although VIP REEFS has some new RFAs posted which are very tempting.

Thanks! I'm kind of upset that this is an under counter tank. Now that I have the RFAs in there I want to be able to see them more. I think a move/upgrade is coming soon.

So is it okay not to feed anemone? In my 10g extra food can make a big difference.

No need to feed the photosynthetic anemones. The strong lighting is all they need.
