FWIW, this is the only way I have seen this anenome locally at shops (like the pic from dolphin). I thought this was a healthy individual...But I do agree that he may want to up his lighting a bit in the near future if he wishes it to really thrive.

It has to do with stress from collection, they don't ship well so they bleach. It's all to common to see them like that.

I didn't get that quote mentioning the dyes from the marine depot (where I got the picture)- that was another site. The fact of the matter is - they come in a variety of colors, and CAN have purple/magenta tips.

Obviously this is turning into a big arguement. Maybe someone should post some facts on this. Have some hard evidence.

Interesting debate. Maybe steve-s could post a pic of his sebea (H. Malu) under 10K lighting. The pic he has in his gallery looks to be under 20k.

LOL, quite the discussion. IMO, the anemone in question is a Heteractis cripsa and BTW, looks quite healthy. The color is a bit faded but IME par for course after the collection and shipping it's been through. All in all I think it looks quite healthy and is by no means bleached.

FWIW, some have mentioned the anemone in question can come in a variety of colors and is abosolutely correct. Anemones of all species are quite often a variety of colors which can make identification quite difficult at times. Also, 260w of PC on a 55 gal will work out just fine providing the anemone adjusts to it's new home.

Personally I would not suggest feeding the anemone as long as you feed for fish (that usually falls on deaf ears for some reason). The one I have now could still be a cripsa but I have my doubts. Might wanna ask the clowns....

Cheers
Steve

Well I'm all concerned now....
I was told it's not supopsed to be this color... What gives?
I think I'm just gonna feed him shrimp and move him high in the tank. More then 260 watts is not gonna happen. The tank is in the living room. I need to make or buy a hood for other lighting...
