The Ritteri anemone or magnificent anemone is by far one of the most stunning, the long tapered tentacles and movement provide something iconic to the reef.
Anemones are considered to be semi aggressive as they will eat fish and crustaceans, although most animals have a built in understanding of the danger and steer well clear.
Ritteri anemones have been known to reach huge sizes in the wild, nearly a meter in diameter however in the home aquarium they do not seem to exceed about 30cm. Providing a strong but not constant water flow, intense lighting and regular feeding is ideal for Ritteri's. Feed your anemone with a selection of meaty raw seafood such as squid, mussel, fish and other crustaceans.
