View Full Version : Ritteri Anemone & Corals

03/24/2016, 05:49 PM
I have a Ritteri Anemone the loves to stay on top of one of our rock formations and stays there. I am wondering what corals you would recommend that can grown around it.

Looking at my aquarium the bottom right does not get a lot of light. So I am basically looking for 2 things.

1. Which coral would you recommend that can grow up the base rock and if it gets stung it can grow back quickly? Something fairly inexpensive since I believe it may grow/recede over time.

2. What corals do not require very much light and can happily exist on the bottom right?

Personally I would not bother that magnifica(The more appropriate name rather than ritteri)
They are a bit of a feather in cap in having/keeping one, I'd leave it alone and focus on the left island if it were mine, maybe just some low light corals down at the very bottom.
I have a mag myself, I just have some hammer down below on it's island.
Really only semi invasive stuff seem to deal w/ nem stings, xenia, GSP, cloves, neither of which I would sacrifice a happy and healthy mag for.
You should also post this in the nem forum, you'll get much more responses.
Vista resident as well, cheers!

From someone who has tried mags without much success I would say leave it and work around it. If it's happy and is doing well let it be the centerpiece of the tank and focus on other areas as mentioned above. A mag with hosting clowns is worthy of a tank by itself.

Thanks for the feedback. I think I will leave it as is and focus my efforts on the left side as suggested.

With a 10" mag and a 12" BTA in my tank I know what you mean. Looks like the best you can do to keep more corals is upgrade.
