    So I came across this very interesting article in the Coral mag... Unfortunately due to copyrights I can not upload images, but if you image search " rock anemone " on google you'll get an idea of what they look like...

    It was about the aquaculture of the rock anemone or also known as Flower or Beaded anemones... By the looks of it, it is not available to public reefs as yet, but the author of the article notes that it might be available as of next year...

    It is REALLY an attractive anemone to have and is alot less lethal than other more common Condylactis Gigantea's... Apparently the brown / tan colors are very common, but the more rare red and green morphs are the stunning ones... It also appear to be reproducing relatively easy, which would be a bonus...

    My only question is, will we be able to obtain them here in SA? How does the import of corals, anemones etc. work? is an individual even allowed to import?

    Are any of the sponsors currently supplying these beautiful creatures?

    Hey there,,,,

    It's in the sept/oct 2012 issue... Think it's from page 62,,, A really interesting article!!

    Would you be able to import these? Only asking out of curiosity, as I haven't started my tank as yet...

    Yes we could, BUT, need to find a source and then add the supplier and species to the permit. I will look into it as it seem to be quite a nice species.

    Hey @carlosdeandrade as far as i can gather very similar than that of other anemones, but it is apparently alot more hardier... and they don't move all over the tank... BONUS!! lol

    Lighting: Moderate to Moderately high.
    Food: the usual cut pieces of table shrimp, mysis or other saltwater fish... apparently adult's can consume up to 1 teaspoon per feeding... 1-3times per week. in order for it to be thriving and reproduce daily feedings...

    wish i could post the entire article as it's such a great read, but it will get removed...

    Yeah all the Admin staff are Samsung junkies. If they were Apple geeks we would have a load more cooler apps and faster access to MASA.:lol:
