    I'm a huge fan of rock flower anemones. They're very cool looking, easy and don't move around much. As for the hairy mushrooms, I'm not a huge fan I had them in my 28 and they grew so fast that they took over the whole thing.

    Thanks. He was going to trade just the mushroom but the RFA is moving everywhere and not staying put? Is that bad? Anything I should look out for? Thanks Brian.

    Well it could be that his system is not appropriate for an anemone. Or, it could be that there is too much flow for it. In my 28, the nem moved for close to a month before it found its happy place. In my 75, I had 4 that I placed as far from the power heads as I could and they never moved.

    Out of curiosity, are the lighting requirements for rock flower nems the same as for other nems?

    All nems have very high light requirements, however some types require more then others. Rock flowers take at the lower end though.
