RBTA Price

So this local guy is selling all his saltwater stuff and has 5 rbta. He's going to be selling each one for $35. I was wondering if that was a good price compared to the size. Here's a picture of them in the background. The one in the front is a seabae.

What's a good sign of it being healthy? Like rich in color?

Excellent price. Almost too good to be true.
The anemone should have a good strong coloring. Really light color indicated bleaching.
It should be inflated and appear to be trying to stay in the light (mine attached under a rock and stretches up to the light).
When touched, there should be the slightest hint of stickiness. Or, if you can observe it being fed, it should grab the food quickly and pull it towards the mouth.
Bubbles on the tips mean very little, but it should not look scraggly.
