As far as size I would guess about 3" when fully open. Now the ritteri you spoke about I would have loved to see that. I bet is was beautiful!
The white one is probably bleached. I remember when one of my LFS tried to tell me they're naturally white (this one way obviously bleached).

When ever your bta inflates, I'm sure everyone would like to see it. As long as anemones are fed well, they will grow very fast. I wish my pretty RBTA would grow longer tentacles instead of getting wider.

I like the long tentacles a lot more then the short bubbly tentacles.

I have to admit this was actually a white one. I have seen them before and this one looked really good but much smaller than the one I got.

I was also tempted to get a long tentacle anemone as they had a few of them as well. BUT....money ran short I like seeing the long tentacles also!

Kenya Tree: Before & After

Quick video of the Kenya Tree Coral I picked up as just a small frag about 7 months ago. Since then it has grown quickly and branched out really good. Soon I will be able to get some frags off of it to put into the upcoming frag tank I am starting.

Biggest fear happened!

My tank has crashed!!!

Two days after my last post, I came home from work and the tank was cloudy. Notice one of my power heads had failed, there was stringy, slimy stuff coming from it.

I checked my parameters and the only thing that was a little high was my nitrates. I done a big water change, replaced the power head and within two days I lost my...

Kenya Tree
Feather duster
Turbo Snail
Astrea Snails
Brain Coral
RFA
Monti Cap

All the fish are fine, my yellow poly[s are trying to hang in along with my BTA and mushrooms and GSP. My zoa's are still closed up but tryinbg to make it and my pulsing zenia is closed tighter than a drum.

No idea what happened or why.....really p***ed about this!

Thanks nano. None, I was looking to see if anything died in the tank that I didn't know about but there wasn't anything missing. Filters were clean, skimmer had just been cleaned and took out some chaeto to thin it out a little. Water was crystal clear.

Guess I need to take my 10g and get it ready for a backup in case. Will at least be able to trans the corals over in case this happens again.
