    Notes:
    Its a beautiful speciman. More or less 10cm in diameter and hight during the day. At night it expands its tentacles to between 12 to 15cm in diameter and hight. I feed it twice a week lance fish or mysis shrimp.
    It needs a medium to large tank or a spot where it can expand without touching other corals. It has a large leathery tube that needs to be buried into soft substrate.
    Reason for selling: I dont have a big enough spot where it can expand without hindering corals around it. ​

    Wes,
    It's not that critical to get rid of it immediately. When would you be able to collect?

    Sounds good helga, not sure when I'll be out that way, you got a time line of getting rid of it? Is it damaging your corals?

    I have 4 tube anemones on my DSB. Yellow, dark purple black, brick red, and a white banded purple mouth. I like them. But they cannot be too close to each other as they can and do have a chemical warfare going.

    The yellow one was over 400 mm across. Before I got the white banded one and the war started. So yes, depending on individual, they can grow big.

    Just be careful that you do not damage its tube when you take it out. The slimy part does not matter, but the inner tube must not be damaged. I lost a beautiful neon orange one due to a tear.

    Do not feed them big pieces of food either. Smaller is better

    Thanks for the input Riaan,
    I agree, they are one of the most beautiful inverts you could have in your tank. A real eye catcher in the tank. Because they grow that big they really need to be in a spot that protects them and the coral around them and where they can be a focus point. I handfeed mine with a tube 2x a week small pieces of lance fish that he takes eagerly and the rest of the time he catches mysis and krill when I feed the fish.
    What needs to be taken into consideration when you place them is the size they expand to at night. It actually doubles in size. The tube also needs to be buried under the soft sand carefully.

    I hope it goes to a good home..... its really a stunner!

    I would like to sell it in the next week or 2.... At night it is expanding dangerously close to 1 of my corals, so would prefer to let it go before we have a problem :(
