New Magnifica/Riterri Anemone

I left them alone for the last 2 years or so, but I couldn't resist this one with a bold red base... I've always loved this color on Magnifica anemones.

I'll be keeping it in my frag tank attached to my display until it's nearly twice this size - I have a pair of adult clowns that haven't given a BTA even a second look since my last Riterri, but I want to make sure this one is big enough to put up with both of them. Wish me luck!

Thanks both of you! I almost forgot - it came with a companion!

New Magnifica/Riterri Anemone

Congrats, looks healthy. Red footed ritteri (IMO) with yellow tentacles are one of the most beautiful in the trade. Usually outta Sumatra or Africa I believe.

Give it some time to recover and it may color up.


Was there anymore lol?

It's hard to photograph right now because it's very subtle, but I can already see signs of yellow developing in most tentacles under the actinic lighting! I've had it for a week and it's definitely improving in color and shape.

I couldn't agree more, this has always been one of the most beautiful colors IMO which is why I had to break from my sabbatical. I'll be removing SPS and rearranging rocks to make it work but I think it'll be worth it.

And unfortunately it was the only Riterri they received in the latest shipment. The LFS seems to get one in at a time every few weeks lately, but the last few weren't as exciting.
