This striking Ritteri anemone is one that you don’t get to see in every shipment
The heteractis magnifica anemone which is also known as Ritteri Anemone is pretty commonly found in our regular shipment from Bali and Indo pacific region to Singapore. However, a recent trip to Marine life aquarium gets my eyes caught into one of the unusual species of Ritteri Anemone that has a very striking colouration which reminds me of the infamous Australia Strawberry shortcake Acropora (SSC).
The light yellow tentacles with a spot of a purple tip make this species unique. However, like all anemone, the heteractis anemone can be hard to keep since it required good flow, lighting and low nitrate in order to do well.
