I recently bought a used tank with some livestock. Included was an nem the previous owner called a carpet anemone, but I'm not so sure. The blue tips are a photo artifact.

Hard to tell, almost looks like a plate not a nem.. does it have an oral disc/mouth?

That's what I thought at first, but it's definitely a nem, I can't get a good angle to show the oral disc. I'm thinking it's a flower anemone, but without the bright middle.

Not a flower nem. What makes you certain it’s not a plate? If you are certain, perhaps search “long tentacle anemone” (yes that is actually the name of an anemone). Could be what you’re looking for friend.

I can't tell you what it is but it isn't any species of flower nem that I'm familiar with. The tentacles look right but it shouldn't have tentacles in the center

Not a rock flower. What makes you certain it’s not a plate? If you are for sure that it isn’t a plate, perhaps search up “long tentacle anemone” (yes that’s a name of an anemone). Could be what you got.

The tentacles are along the outside rim, it's just folded over.

I've got some sand anemones, they are very similar to rock nems accept they spit out one baby at a time (every few months) and they're way stickier all over. If left unchecked for too long they can take over a tank (I have to go in and get rid of about 9 a year).

      I'm looking to sell a few Anemones from my Tank and make room for corals.  
      They are commonly called Rose Bubble Tips.  Red to pink tips and base is blue green with white spots.  All around 2-4 inches in diameter, depending on how opened up they are.  Pics don't give them justice, they are vivid red in my tank and always a conversation starter.
      I have 3 to sell, $35ea OBO.
      We can negotiate a place to meet or you can pick up.  If Shipping is required, we can arrange a FedEx overnight at buyer's expense.

      So this really odd thing is happening, I have about 30ish separate zoa/paly colonies in my tank and they are all doing very well except for one variety, I have rastas in two places, a colony on the frag rack and one on the zoa garden I put together. Both of them have shrunken polyps, not closed but just very shrunken polyps, and I just have no idea why they are shrinking, especially when both of them are doing the same thing and none of the other 29 varieties are having issues... Any thoughts/experiences?

      Here are the rules:
      • One photo entry per person • Pic has to be taken by YOU • Must be in by the posted deadline • Must follow subject guidelines for the month   Winners will be determined based on voting poll results after submission deadline.      This months subject: Show me your anemones. 
      The person with the least number of fish will be put to the top of the voting list. I want us to stray away from the fish-anemone pictures.
      Deadline:
      May 31st 11:59 pm

      I'm looking for a green bubble tip anemone or two, other colors as well. Also looking for a large bubble tip anemone any color, 6 inches plus, and live rock, dry rock is fine. Really looking for cheap rock $1-$1.50 pound if possible! Thanks everyone!
