Corynactis

Corynactis spp. are mainly temperate species, known as Strawberry anemones. They are small, not usually larger than one inch (2.5 cm) in diameter, and colonial, reproducing by fission and pedal laceration to cover large areas of rocks. Tropical species may occasionally be introduced to aquariums with live rock. The tropical species are less colorful, tend to be cryptic, and form much less densely packed colonies. All Corynactis spp. feed on zooplankton and particulate organic matter. To keep them healthy and encourage division, they need to be fed at least several times per week. A "milkshake" of chopped seafood can be used, but they will also take flake or pelletized foods, and frozen shrimp or worms.

Thank you!!! I've met other seahorse fanatics online in the UK who have these in their tanks but haven't known where to find them locally. ♡ I keep my tanks at 72° so they should adapt well apparently. 🐙
