Here's mine. Camera captured only half of the anemone. It's a little stressed now and is still looking for a good spot after I transferred it to my new 60 gallon from 40B. I would say mine is easily 4-5 inches big. Click image for larger version

If you don't mind me asking how much was it and how big was it when you got it also how long have you had it. It looks pretty awesome

I paid $30 for it...it was marked as a green BTA. So I got lucky in that sense. Otherwise they retail $69-$100. It hasn't changed much since I got it 2-3 months ago. It's a very nice and hardy anemone.

Unless you have a well established tank with good lighting there's little chance you can keep an anemone for the long term.

not sure what you mean by rainbow rbta, I have reds and greens, tell us more about your tank, gown old, parameters, lighting, ect/ $80 will be wasted if you do not have the proper set up

My tanks is about a year old it's a 75dt with a 55g sump/fug. I no it's overkill but I made it with what I had. I all ready have a rbta I've had for about 3 months and a GBTA I had for about two months all doing well I do bi weekly water changes and test my water weekly. When I say rainbow it has pink green and a redish colors like the ones you folks put pictures up of by the way they are awesome looking. All and my lighting is two 120 Chinese LEDs

Where do you live? If you are in SoCal I can point you to a place you can buy 5"-6" rainbow for $60.

My 2 pictures were taken about 6 weeks apart. After 6 weeks under LEDs, notice all the bulbs, nothing else changed, and they were under 2x250 MH before the LEDs, curious if anyone has seen a change after LEDs.
