As Autumn sets in here in the Northern Hemisphere so I’ve been thinking of a nano reef poster child, er, coral. Do you think Epicystis crucifer is worthy of this title? Have you kept a Flower anemone before?

“…also known as the Rock Anemone, is a member of the Phymanthidae family. Originating from the Caribbean, these anemones are found in a wide array of colors, with the oral disc often being a different color than the rest of the anemone. The oral disc lacks tentacles, and the tentacles are often beaded in appearance.” ~ LiveAquaria
