    Hi all,

    Recently bought this purple tipped anemone. It's either Heteractis or Condylactis..... I think, can anyone identify ?

    I have attached a photo.

    Thanks.

    If it's a
    Ritteri Anemone (Heteractis magnifica) then I'm afraid it might be on it's way out as "bleached" is a sure sign of decline...you'r picture actually looks like it's "healthy"..? guess thats why I think it's a Condy...:blush: Any more pic's...where is it now...?
