Actually, the Sebae Anemones have a wide variety of colors - from green to purple to pink, but are usually found in a light tan to dark brown. And they can have purple tips.

I have a nice picture of one that looks very similar to yours, Firefighter, but I don't know how to include it in the post....

Sorry dolphin you are wrong. Those pics are of a very badly bleached anemone. Please know what your talking about before you try to give bad advice.

Fire-- It may be ok where it is. It is not to late, he can very well recover and get back to his correct color. As dolphin stated there are variations, but tips should not be present. They may be different colors but they should be a very dark solid color. When there shipped there in dark boxes, and low light facilities. They will expel there zooxanthellae, or will loose it gradually. Keep him well fed, mabye a whole shrimp every 3 days until you see some improvement. If hes getting darker thats a good sign. Heres another picture of a lighter sebae in great shape http://home.t-online.de/home/Kreuer....r/HeteracS.JPG

Good LUCK

Six-line, I hope that my Marine Biology degree is not going to waste. Granted, my main focus is not inverts, but still. I think his anemone looks fine.

YES the tips are a sign of poor health. They can be present in a healthy anemone but it should be a very dark brown/green over all. They also need metal halide lighting long term. There also one of the more difficult anemones. Firefighter please bring it back, it won't last. If you think his anemone looks fine mabye you should do some research, because I know what a sick anemone looks like.

Well the picture of the sebae anemone that I posted is from the marine depot live website. SEE THE PURPLE TIPS? I don't think they would post a picture of a sick anemone. Goodness.

"The Sebae anemone (Heteractis malu) can be cream, brown, gray green, purple, or yellow (with dyes). It sometimes has magenta tips with white rings. The oral disc is sparse with tentacles, that are short and stubby."

First of all any site that states dyes is really no good. Dyes are used to make a bleached anemone look colorful. Im sorry but im not going to argue with you. That is a bleached anemone, whether you like it or not. BTW im sure marine depot has expert anemone care takers that devote every second to the care of their specimens Please do some research before you tell me im wrong. Ive done m yreading, you obviously haven't.
