DescriptionA magnificent anemone which usually has a beautiful pink or purple base, but can come in any colours.

Its tentacles come in many colours but usually green and beige and its tips are normally coloured differently.

It is very difficult to keep, this is usually due to the anemone not travelling well when shipped.

Avoid anemones with gapping mouths and appearing deflated and unable to attach with its foot. Please READ more information detailing the care required for this anemone. One of the hardest to care for.
