riterri/magnifica anemone

So after browsing thread on here it seems that the riterri/magnifica anemone is the best choice for my Flurry clownfish ( Amphiprion ocellaris) Im afraid the riterri are gonna be too big for my 34g tank. What anemone would you suggest... my LPS suggested a LTA but not sure the clowns will host in it.

H. malu is a H. malu. Sebae anemone can be several anemone species, most common of which is H. crispa. Look for, and read about H. malu, not Sebae.
Malu stay on the sand, hardy and does not get larger than about 8 inches max. Nice color, and Ocellaris will very often use them as host, very quickly.

I have a Red Sea Reefer 170 (about the same gallons as you) with a magnifica. Mine is doing great. It's a small one, and I don't feed it (just let the light and some random pellets feed it).

In my experience, any clown will host in the best available anemone, or closest thing to an anemone if none are available. I'd go bta unless you are going for a display that replicates nature.

Probably over time most any clown will accept most any anemone, but often when it's not a natural match as found in wild it could take a lot longer for them to recognize and accept, that seems to be the issue most experience.

However natural or not, for some reason Malu seems to be quickly accepted usually, and that would be my choice for that size tank.

If you did a mag it would eventually get pretty big for that tank, might end up being all you could keep in there, as it will sting whatever it touches.

LTA is another option, just keep in mind they max at 18" while malu max's at 10" usually
