    Hey guys...

    Has anyone ever heard of a Yellow coloured, red foot anemone? There is one I've got my eyes on, but it's bright yellow and looks similar to a Yuma Ric.

    Can anyone shed light on to the possible ID of this little guy?

    All help is much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Sean

    They had some big-ish bases which dont show on the pics, so no idea but they were all similar sizes, around the size of tennis ball in diameter

    I'm not sure what it is. It doesn't look healthy, possibly even dyed.

    Heteractis aurora and it isn't dyed, that's what color they are. I hope your German is good :)

    Heteractis aurora – Meerwasserwiki

    I had one and it did well until it didn't and then in 2 - 3 days it just died. Very odd curious creatures but I wont keep another one.

    Hectic... You sure it's not dyed? I can't find a nice bright yellow one online?

    PS: Happy birthday @fly* ! Hope you had a great day.

    If it is a Heteractis aurora, it is one of the 10 hosting anemones, and is far from healthy.

    Yeah maybe, don't know enough about nennies to really comment, I did find that pic when I had mine, if you search google images there are quite a few that are yellow and red? And I have seen quite a few that look exactly like this one locally, unless it's the LFS that bringing in dyed bennies? Sean mine came from Animal Kingdom, where you get yours and thanks :)
