So yesterday I hosted the November meeting. During the meeting I noticed something very exciting. One of my rock nems was giving birth! Once the majority of the members left I started collecting them. Anyone else in the club have success with breeding these guys?

They’re all about 1/8” in size and there’s quite a few.

I had this happen 10+ years ago when i first entered the hobby.  At the time not many people had heard of flower rock anemone and I was told they were a pest anemone.  So i killed them.....stupid mistake!!!!

Awesome, congrats!

 

I just recently set up a rock flower  tank in hopes of breeding them...so time will tell. I have bought 9 now, but most are pretty small and they do have to mature before they start breeding. And you do have to have  male and females from my understanding. So out of the 9  I have I think odds will be better of having male and females.

Agreed! The more you have the better the chances of acquiring males and females.

I will be selling some for sure. Just want them to get some size first. Right now there the size of a piece of Nerds candy.

Update on these guys. All is well and they have doubled in size!  Found a few more shortly after my first post. A week ago had a couple die do to some kind of slime/bacteria that was covering the two anemone. I think it was caused by some leftover food. With a new total of 20 babies! I hope to not have anymore loses.
