    I have not manipulated any colours other than to excite the Aiptasia with UV and Blue light. This is all auto fluorescence.

    It is only a pain because we do not like what they do. But in nature I hardly think they are an issue - just like algae. They have natural predators and are kept in check. In our tanks we do not have that balance so they overgrow and outcompete other stuff.

    Hi Hot Sauce, your aiptasia rather look more for me like a sand anemone. Aiptasia i know is brown or white.:)

    @HOT SAUCE
    I doubt if that one is aptaisia
    There are so many small anemones in the world.
