Yes. It will get the most rigorous QT. The new anemone wonít go in the tank unless itís 110% healthy and ready.

I was tempted to order one as well, but the last one I got of those needed treatment and bleached completely. So I rather passed and wait until AC gets them again..

I know what you mean. I wasnít too eager to buy one myself.
Iíll have QT ready and Cipro. Thereís no way the gig is going in the tank near Ritteri unless Iím absolutely positive itís healthy.

I paired the two males from Pairs 1 & 2.
I successfully paired them in a tank that was new to both of them. Prior to that I introduced the smaller male to the larger one where he was already established and the latter did not like the former one bit. As I moved them both to a new setting they began to accept each other. After 3 weeks of pairing I moved them back to the main tank where they share the Ritteri anemone. However, the smaller male is only allowed there at night to sleep.

I ended up cancelling my gig order. It was going to be too much to deal with at this time. I have a Ritteri that's done well so far but I want a gigantea eventually.

This clown has a Ritteri anemone in the tank but he chose a Bounce Mushroom as an alternate host! He needs to move!

He wants a gigantea and the bounce is closer to that than the magnifica.
I actually noticed that some percula, especially the ones with lots of black, are very insistent on a gigantea. Before they accept any other anemone, even others that are natural hosts for percula, they rather cozy up with mushrooms, green star polyps, and the like.

If you come across a larger healthy magnifica and don't want it yourself, I still need one for my bicinctus. The small one from DD is suffering too much with such big fish.

Ok, things are getting out of control. He's loving the mushroom harder tonight. If this continues I might have to move things around.

That bounce is getting big. Time to take out the razor blade.
That is a very nice pair.

My main pair has been living in their magnifica for about 20 days and I have not noticed any loss in black color...yet. I also added two wrasses to my tank several days ago. Since then the smaller clown hangs out by overflow area during the day and sleeps in the anemone at night. He has stopped treating the bounce mushroom as a host anemone.
Finally, the anemone has grown a little bit. Its metallic green oral disc is unique and beautiful. I have not seen many/any others of its kind in that color scheme.



My third wild Onyx has paired with a small ORA bred Ocellaris clownfish.

(and a wild Amphiprion bicolor I found today.)

And these were all the wild percula they had at the store:
