If it bails just pick it up and put it back on top. Mine tried to jump ship about 4 times then finally gave up and never moved again.

Usually when their happy they wonít move. My mag is usually my indicator to let me know if something is wrong. Mine gets blasted by a mp40 and loves it.

haha it's in a SPS tank and the mouth has stayed close the whole week and it's happy on it's island with halides baking it since it has not moved.

All in all the LFS has some nice healthy Ritteri's

I think Gigantea would be better four you in a smaller tank. It is easier to keep the Gigantea just at the sand rock interface. Much harder to keep a Magnifica low down. He always want to climb up. A 37 gal you can keep a small Magnifica in 1/2 of the tank, and the other 1/2 keep SPD. Be careful to keep the Magnifica from touching the wall or other rock that is higher than the one he is on.

I for now have plenty of space from the anemone and rock work, I wanted a Gigantea but could not find one so ended up with the Magnifica.

Don't feed him much and you will be fine. Otherwise he will really grow fast amd out grow the space quickly, in term of months.
