hi guys.
i got these from the LFS just now.
not to sure what they are...
they are about the size of a zoa and kinda look like a zoa.
but it might be small anemone's?
never seen something like this other than a bleached anemone.
either that, or i got some awesome colour zoa's!!
here are some pics.

I think they are bleached out zoas, give them a week or so to colour up and you should have a much better idea.

Yes they do Furbz. Theu contan zoanthellae that can get expelled.
They can also loose colour if the light they under is not strong enough and go brown... The pigmnets are produced to protect the zoanthellae againt UV radiation..

but these arent brown. they have lime green tenticles on the outside with the inside being white..
i think looking at them now, one of them actually looks like it is purging itself like a nennie?

Either Majano or Jewel anemone..
I would sump it while you make sure. Don't want majano getting a foot hold in your DT..

The "aiptasia" tank is now being setup for a Mantis :)

Sorry Wee-man :whistling:

I don't think the jewels grow that fast, but don't get much bigger either..I think.
Best google them ;)
