I got a great pair of these Anemone Shrimp
Periclimenes cf. brevicarpalis

from GA

They live on a
Cryptodendrum adhaesivum aka, the Adhesive Sea Anemone

Not great pics, but wanted to share

Thank guys..
the anemone doesn't move ever... it will lift it's rim so that it looks like a saddle... the small nubby tentacles do make weird patterns tho...
Not quite like crop circle patterns :) but they do have variation in the pattern

As for cost, I think it was 65.00

The tentacles on this anemone are super sticky...
I read online that it has a very potent sting, but I'm not sure about that..

They are sluts they host everything that moves, I find them all over the tank but their primary home is in my Euphylia garden where I always find them canoodling, lol
