    A friend of mine found this anemone in a rock pool in the Port alfred area.
    Any help on identifying it would be great!?!

    He has had it for almost a year now, so i'm not too worried about him killing it. but yes the waters around here are cooler and our tanks run around 20C.
    It seems to have thrived and grown in his tank.
    It's the only one we have ever seen so i am wondering how it got here, or is it a common specie?

    Thanks CHops...
    Any reason why this one has such nice colours and isnt the boring red/green nennie that is so common along our coast.
