    Friend of mine recently bought this purple anemone
    Absolutely stunning colour. Perhaps some guidance on its care , characteristics etc, would hate for him to loose a specimen like this.

    looks like a Marcodactyla doreensis
    but more a purple version of a heteractis crispa, purple sabae

    This is my guess. Without pictures of the oral disc and column I can't be positive. It looks a bit under fed. Color may darken in time.
