Rock Flower Anemones have become widely popular in the reef aquarium hobby. They are available in a myriad of vibrant, contrasting color combinations. They are considered to be one of the easiest anemone species to care for in the home aquarium, making them a great choice for beginner or advanced aquarists. They only reach about 4″ in size so they are even ideal for aquariums as small as 5 gallons.

Prices typically range from $35.00 to $100.00 but I’ve seen one seller try and fetch $1800.00 for an extraordinarily beautiful specimen at one of the trade shows we attended.

Sometimes referred to as a Rock Flower Anemone (RFA) or Red Bearded Anemone, there are actually 11 distinct species of Rock Flower Anemones which include:
Phymanthus crucifer (Red Beaded Anemone)
