    What color should they be?

    Here is mine. Note the one on the right. White base, instead of the green shine of the one in the middle.

    Is it an Inferno?

    And this one? is it an Inferno? With proper nice round bubble tips.talking about the one on the left.

    And where is the green shine to the base on the big one to the right, is that an Inferno?

    Let me hear your answers. What do you think I got?

    They all look like infernos to me. The thing that defines an inferno is the yellow tips and orange/red tentacles as far as i know.

    Is the colour difference not dude to different lighting or signs of stress ?

    Ive seen a split from an inferno with no yellow tip or anything.....

    But to me Yellow tips, red/pink tentincals & blue/green base..

    My inferno stressed out & went brownish & lost all it color. So Stress might be a factor there

    Ok, will tell you whats going on. These are all from the same "mother". So even with all the color variations they are all Inferno anemones.

    You will find that after a split they can decide to go into hiding for weeks if not months. The pink one went underneath a 18kg rock and stayed there. I could not even reach it to feed it. Nevermind receiving any light. Eventually it walked up the back of the rock stack to emerge as a small pink bubble tip.

    The first picture, the one on the right, sis the same but not to the same long period.

    Plus, during the day when lights are the brightest, you hardly see that greenish color on the base. More noticeable later the day when the LEDS lights turn more blue.

    Hi guys @vlies I put a green bubble tip in my tank few weeks ago came from a brightly lit led tank to my t5 setup. I researched and found a article stating that bubble tips can form more symbiotic algae when in weaker light and become brown not from stress but just as a measure of increasing food. I was wondering is it true cause he looks as healthy as ever. I'm also getting an inferno soon I don't want it brown also otherwise I will first go led then inferno.

    The bright pink one has gained some inferno coloration. I did like the bright pink, although I know its not their healthy color. Had no splits last 6 months, maybe even more. Time flies.

    Interesting the time impact - please keep us posted! Even to understand how long this will take for them to recover to full health/color!

    Hi. Yes the are inferno’s I have one. When it comes to lighting they tend to look better under T5’s then led’s. They more neon under T5’s. The fact you haven’t had splitting in 6 months could mean your water quality good. I’ve been told if the water quality is great they spit quicker if bad they also split quicker think its a survival technique in the wild. White bace could be a few things like it’s still small and not full colored up or under fed so not enough nutrition to fully colour up and lighting eg spectrum where it is in the tank, like being closer to the light source. Seen inferno’s white in the center close to light source before. I hope this helps a bit.

    So I got my inferno and he has tiny yellow tips little green on the Base a few tentacles actually have yellow going right through them bit of a odd guy. I wanted to ask do they normally grow so fast. Mine went from smaller than a saucer to bigger then a dinner plate in 2 months she is now the biggest neni in the tank. Will post pics later

    Depends on individuals.
    I had one that split into 3 equal parts. One grew quickly to 4 or even 5 times the size of the other 2. Same lights, same height, sitting next to each other. So it does depends on the individual, even if they are genetically the same individual.
