I like solid glass or plexi: keeps the fish in, dirt and pet hair out, and evaporation to a minimum which also makes the heaters work a bit less.

@Ryan

Looking at pics of the mouth on the blue one, you are probably right: ricordea florida. What kind of anemone do you think the red one is? The tentacles are very tiny and tight packed, and...
