Why wasn't your other rose anemone a true rose anemone?

They're all Entacmaea quadricolour. Just different color variations. A lot of them are the pink/dull pink with the greenish base coming from China. The one you have probably came from Bali as it is pink/red with no green tint around the base.

Nice anemone :)

well, my old one could have been a "true" but it was from the phillipines, and it was a dark rose color (wow, hence the name, hehe). anywho, it wasn't a bubble tip and wasnt brightly colored like this one. i like my new one much better.

I threw one in my tank about a 1 1/2 years ago. I have given 8 away and have 11 still in the tank. Rabbits of the sea lol.

They look pretty healthy pulleygirl congrates

well, according to the LFS the one that i got rid of is the kind that reproduces like crazy (i had it split once, gave one to my bf, and mine hadn't split since, but his split 3 times). so, i traded that one in for this rose bubble tip anemone, and hopefully it doesnt split (well, i guess if it did i could take them down to the LFS and get store credit for them). anywho, i am very happy with it....it adds so much color to my tank!

Well next time anyone gets a clone, Let me know. Ive been looking for a nice one from a reliable source. Thats one thing that the tank I take care of is lacking, a beautiful anemone.

The problem with harvesting mine is the clowns. I have a mated pair of Maroons, and big moma really doesnt like me anymore since I accidently sucked up part of one of her roses. She relentlessly attacks and it hurts lol
