New yellow sebae anemone

So my brother was very excited to show me his new yellow sebae anemone that he brought home yesterday, he was then very disappointed when he found out it's most likely dyed. I'd say there is a 99.9999% chance that it is dyed. It is very beautiful but will be even more difficult to keep alive since it has been dyed. Our LFS owner had no idea and was very apologetic, he will take it back for a full refund. I think we may keep it though and try to help it recover. If it stays bright yellow then maybe it will be the first ever known naturally bright yellow sebae

Just thought I'd post this so that anyone who is thinking of getting one realizes that this is not a natural color for the sebae anemone and the survival rate will be very low.

Here are some pictures of ours currently. If anyone has any advice of the best foods to feed him and how often to feed him then that would be appreciated. We fed him some squid today.

Thanks!!

Unfortunately, that is not it's natural color. It was injected with dye. Good luck with it.

HeteracCrispa

DyedCorals

This is what they should look like.

Yes i know that it is dyed, that is what the whole post is about lol.

But thanks for the links, they have some good information about caring for a bleached or dyed specimen.

one week update

Here is the anemone after one week, we have been feeding it half a cube of squid every other day, missed today though but did get the pics.








I think it looks less yellow, still lively though at least : )

if an anemone is injected with die can it slowly push the die out?

I don't know if they are injected or if they are just left to sit in some very dyed water for awhile, but if this anemone does recover it will lose all of the yellow dye and hopefully return to it's regular color.

Week two update

The anemone has moved so it is in a more difficult place to photograph unfortunately. Here's a few blurry shots though.
